Climb initial steep bulges to the comfortable ledge where you can stand and de-pump. From here commit to the vertical crux section (WI5/5+ - depending on conditions).


The route is located around the buttress to the right of Getting Oriented (see beta photos and ). Approach is the same as for Getting Oriented.


We only needed ice screws although "Ice Climbs of the Lake Superior Region" mentions that rock gear may be needed in lean conditions.
