Description Suggest change

This climb is south facing, so conditions can be very variable from one day to the next. I've climbed Skyrocket when it "was bomber take a screw no problem ice," to "rotten, sunbaked, wet, detached, no screw placement in sight ice". When bomber, it is a good long pitch of ice. It doesn't get hard until after 100 feet of low angle blob, then it gets steep and ice can be very different from the bottom. Be prepared for possible runouts.

Location Suggest change

This route is located in the main drainage west of the small cabins/ice climber carved out of a dead tree motel/hotel. The top of it can be seen through the trees if you are looking for it. Access has not been an issue that I know of yet. However, some development is happening at the trailhead?

Protection Suggest change

Screws, v-threads, runouts possible at the top. Huge tree at the top for belay/rappel.
