DescriptionClimb a short moderate pillar stemming off another one to a awkward mantel on to a nice ice ledge below a roof...Clip a fixed pin or 2 maybe with a long draw (you are still close to the ground so its tough to decide weather to extend at all)... From this perch you move out left on ice and rock around an icicle to a couple of powerful steep moves up on to a more moderate finish...
A really fun climb... The grade is super dependent on conditions... George Hurley told me one year it was so fat it went at 4+ and everyone was running up it... Usually though plan on short but powerful climbing and a little bit spooky pro at the crux...
