Description

The line of weakness up the middle of cliff to the top... Really fun and typically fat...

Climb up on to the slab and head for the corner of ice above... The difficulty of the crux steep section is very dependent on conditions... sometimes it feels 3+ sometimes a soft 3 but always cool... After the business of the corner the angle eases up and you can cruse moderate slabs and bulges to the trees and belay from a tree with fixed rap rings...

There is a fun variation where you break left before the steep section and climb a narrow section of ice to a ledge with a small tree on it and finish above the red headwall over some bulges and slabs...

Location

The main line up the middle of the cliff... Starting on a slab and heading up a steep corner...

Rap the route...

Protection

Good solid screws all the way...
