Ash Route

WI3+ R, Ice, 160 ft (48 m),  Avg: 1.6 from 5 votes
FA: Virgil Ash?
Utah > Central Utah > Maple Canyon > Maple Canyon Ice > Main Canyon Rd Ice

Description

Very unintimidating looking ice, left of the left facing corner. Some steeper short sections highlighted by poor feet in icicles and poor tool placements above. Can range from thin to fairly thick, but, if thick can be hollow. Tends to go short steep, to low angle, to short steep, to low angle thin, to mid angle ice, snow break, to mid angle ice finish on wallow to tree.

Location

Located to the right of Chicken Limbo, and to the left of Under Wraps. First route to the right of the corner where the road swings back to the left, going straight towards the bridge. Can rappel from sling on tree.

Protection

Screws to match the ice thickness. Anchor at the fairly stout mountain mahogany about 50 feet of wallowing up from the last of the steeper ice.
