Description

Although the WI3 rating is said to be somewhat understated early season, this sunny climb usually provides a mellow WI 3 line by January. By this time, the easiest place to begin is on the right hand side of the initial steep step. After overcoming this step, continue up low-angled ice and possibly snow, pass a small tree on your left, and finish at an excellent belay tree at the top. Rap down the route with two ropes or one rope with a v-thread.

Location

Hike left from Bingo World/The Thrill is Gone about 150 yards. The climb will be obvious as it the widest flow and dominates this side of the wall. Directly below The Fat One is a 30-40 foot pitch of WI 3 that can be combined with the climb.

Don't bother after it's snowed even a couple inches. Complete slog to the anchors. Feb 19, 2013

a 70m will barely reach in one rap from the small lower tree climbers left of the route Jan 13, 2014
To the climbers who traded ropes with me on this route and thrill is gone today (monday 2/18 afternoon), I have your rappel gear from the tree above Fat One. 2 lockers a draw and a double length sling. So sorry I forgot to trade it back. Hit me up at (406) 595-1094 and I'll get it back to you ASAP! Thanks! Feb 18, 2019 · Lost & Found
