Description

This is a gross ice flow that is formed from contaminated water from LA canyon and the sewage plant that is the stream that is located at The "Y". Other than that the climbing is good. Watch out for tampons and other trash. I recommend keeping your eyes and mouth closed as it sprays from your swing. Also observe the odor and try to leave your expensive trick outer wear in your pack at the top. Take a shower when you get home and sterilize your gear. The crux is getting the smell off of everything that was used on the route. Worth doing once just to experience the yuk and climb.

Location

This is the obvious flow at the far east end of the crag.

Protection

Ice screws and runners. Stoppers and cams for the anchors. Rap in to climb out.
