Start 15' right of the WI4 ice (Lowe Gravity) in the West Firehouse area. The route begins out of the cave on overhanging terrain past 2 bolts to an awkward bulge where a 0.5-.75 cam protects the move atop. From the great no-hands rest, follow the bolt line past what appears from the ground (and picture) to be easy, slabby climbing (beware!). This section may have you screaming "Beta ME!". Mini-huecos, pockets, and horizontals keep your attention low, with the blank looking top-out looming above. A few dirt hooks takes you to an independent anchor on the large ledge. This route gives you the option to climb pure rock to the top or traverse onto the neighboring WI4- ice. Late season conditions may bring veraglas to the upper part of the climb.
This route is located in the West Firehouse (right gully) 15' right of the main WI4 ice flow. Descend via the anchors on the ledge atop the route.
