Gear Jammer

WI5 M5, Mixed, Ice, 80 ft,  Avg: 3 from 1 vote
FA: Jack Hunt
Colorado > CO Ice & Mixed > Wolf Creek Pass… > Chain Station

Description

A strenuous mixed line that is well worth doing if you are in the area. If you need another reason, there aren't many mixed lines where you get to drag up gear this big!

Start in the typically dry chimney right of Honeymoon Gully and climb easy rock to the obvious horizontal line of weakness out right. Follow this to the ice and ascend ice to the anchors above Bigcicle.

You definitely want doubles and some really long slings to keep ropedrag manageable.

Location

First tier of the chain station.

Protection

Cams up to #4.5 or 5 Camalot (older style) and a few screws. You will likely use most of your cams #1 Camalot and larger, so don't skimp!

I've already placed the #4.5 and #4 Camalots, just #3.5, #3 and #2 to go!
