Description

There are a few variations with this one. The line of weakness is on the right at about WI4. The line on the left was thin and probably WI5.

The right side had two obvious headwalls with a slopey ledge between the two. The second headwall had better ice (still thin and hallow in spots) on the right side of it, though a scratchy sketchy mixed line (or really good conditions) could go striaght to the top. After the second headwall hike up to a small but sturdy tree for an anchor. There are more possibilities above.

The left side is pretty much dead on vertical, candled and thin WI5.

Both of the lines are top-ropeable

Location

This is between the Main Cliff and Orange Crush wall and is probably best to approach from the Main Cliff. Walk to the far right of main cliff and up the hill, following the ledge band, the flow will come from the left.

Protection

Sketchy ice screws, probably a stubby.

I saw some rap slings around trees at the top, but this can be easily walked off descending along orange crush wall. Mar 1, 2015

I climbed this route for the first time the other day, fun route... i had seen folks lower off from after the second bulge... it looked like a choice between a dead log anchor and a dead stump anchor... not liking this choice i went all the way up to the trees making it about a 180 foot climb... something to think about anyway... i didnt inspect anything too closely so who knows... it could be fine Feb 10, 2010
