Description

Ice Invaders is a fun and easy climb, perfect for new ice climbers and leaders. Not very steep, plenty of rests, with a few steeper spots.
Steepest right near the top-out when I climbed it.
Top out and walk about 15 feet up the stream to a tree on the right with webbing, belay and rap from here.
2 rope rappel.

Location

Located in the Tempest Area
2 climbs to the left of Tempest, easily seen from the road.
Short approach, but through possibly deep snow, up talus.
