DescriptionAs the name implies (at least to those who played early '90s video games), this route requires some Mortal Combat-style karate chop hand jams. With two bolts and bomber gear in between, Sub-Zero is one of the better (and possibly hardest?) traditional routes in Eleven-Mile.
Begin off a cheater stone, and climb slightly crumbly rock (a bit of a theme for the Icebox) up a flake, then undercling right through a roof to a stance below a trio of cracks up the bulging wall. Clip a fixed stopper and bust up and left via the "Mortal Combat" toss into the leftmost crack. Continue up with powerful moves on terrible jams to the anchor at the lip.
LocationSub-Zero is in the middle (20 feet right of the 5.13 sport route, 80 feet right of Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out) of the steep west face of the Icebox. Rope up exactly where the trail meets the wall.
