Description

Another long moderate route. The first pitch is a low angled calf burner to a belay in the trees on the right. Move left from the belay to reach a headwall that leads to the trees.

Location

Walk past Weeping Winds to the next large line of ice.

Protection

Double ropes recommended for the rap.

There are many different lines possible here... maybe up to 6 or so if the ice is fat enough. On some of the variations rock pro may be helpful. Typically thin down low and better toward the top. Some of the finishes are good grade 4 and some are more 3+ish. Plan your route from the bottom so you don't get stranded without a belay. If you climb the right side you can make it to a birch belay with a 60m rope. Feb 18, 2013
