DescriptionIn terms of literal falling pitches, there are four, but you can easily combine the first two and complete the climb in three. Although not very high up the mountain side, the ice tends to form in several drips leaving tons of air space making it difficult to protect and giving it an alpine feel. Some of the ice covers a thick layer of slush so don't go hog wild hacking your way up the ice or you might find yourself hanging on the slick rock face where there was once a nice coat of ice.
Unless the upper section is completely frozen over, You're bound to get wet as the water continues to run all through the season.
