DescriptionVery good climbing for the short length.
There are several other possibilities on this wall.
There are two steep parts, the lowest being near the top of the small right-facing rock corner, the other is the curtain on the overhang.
There was decent ice on the slab above the OH when I climbed it, but be aware that like all such slabs, the ice gets skinny before the top.
Were it twice the height, this would be a grand crag to climb at.
LocationFrom trailhead, take trail leading west along the base of the mountain. After crossing a streambed and walking another five minutes, cut off right, over a small ridge. Work around a beaver pond, then cut directly upslope. You may have to zigzag a bit in search of the wall.
Draw Blood starts below a small, right-facing rock corner left of the cliff's center. Up high is an overhang that ice drapes over in several spots; this route takes the rightmost curtain.
