DescriptionFrom the bottom of the flow climb a short first step and follow a ramp left to the bottom of a steep wall with a pillar. Up the wall to easier slabs and the top. It feels a little more sustained than some other WI3's at Frankenstein. It also seems less traveled which can mean less easy hooking. [Note: In keeping with the consensus, I changed the "headline" grade to "WI3-4". R. Hall]
We did it in one pitch to the trees at the top with 60m ropes. There is a pine tree on a ledge to the left of the final steep section, but there may be no ice.
Can also climb the sustained steep wall to the right of the ramp when conditions are right. This variation is probably WI4.
