DescriptionThe crux of this route is climbing past the first three bolts. The rest of the route is a cruise except for the last couple of moves. The route trends up and to the right above a large roof, across a water groove then onto a nubbly arete.
It took four outings to finish the drilling on this route. John Page (aka: The Local Expert in the Verm's Rock & Ice article about the Thimble) kept stealing my bail biners by scrambling to the summit and rapping down the old eye bolt rap route. I hid and waited for him the third day. Despite John's "Modeling in the Nude" (literally being caught red handed with his pants down) possessing my most recent bail biner as he rappeled to the ground, John denied stealing any of my bail biners. The moral of this story... don't drink yourself into the wet brain syndrome so you may remember the present (or get caught "Modeling in the Nude").
