Description

This a very beautiful climb that is excellent for the beginner. Thick, thunker ice that protects with screws on any part of the climb. The climb is 150 feet with the steepest ice being at the bottom. This climb only comes in every 3 to 4 years. There are remnants, old pitons, of rock climbing having been done in this gulch as well. There were also slings around a chockstone at the top of the ice climb.

Location

Located on the east side of the canyon approximately 1 mile south of the Sunday Wall access. Access is across private land and then a slope requiring a tough scrub oak bushwhack (my favorite), snow covered boulders, and deadfall. Please attemp to contact the land owner whose property you must cross. We did not have any problems this day, but I did knock on the door to try and get permission 3 different times I was in the canyon.

Protection

Screws for lead. Fixed slings for rappel. V-thread for second rap if you only have one rope. Cordura outerwear for bushwhack :-)
