DescriptionThis is a great trad line indeed! Not all routes need a name, but out of simplicity, I like to think of it as the "West Corner".
Climb the beautiful, gear eating crack/corner, past some thin ice blobs (can be the crux depending on the amount/quality of ice) to the upper corners. I personally liked the 1st of 2 right-facing corners as an exit. It is cleaner, has a killer hand and finger jams, and deals with less vegetation. Of course, you could continue up the 2nd corner or trend further right onto the anchor of the easy WI3 ice.
Due to the excellent natural protection options, no bolts have been placed on this line. There are plenty of trees above to set anchors from. Enjoy!
