Description [Suggest Change]

Steep ice! The epitome of ice climbing at Lake Willoughby, in my honest opinion.... Some good stemming in places will offer a bit of a rest but this line is steep and unrelenting all the way to the top. This route is pretty much a plumb line but if climbed in two pitches, I'm sure you could find a decent stance midway.

Location [Suggest Change]

The Mindbender Amphitheater at the north end of the cliffs at Lake the right of Call of the Wild and to the left of Renormalization

Protection [Suggest Change]

Bring a whole bunch of screws (10 ish) depending on how many pitches you make it..
The first ascent of this awesome route was in 1977 with wood-shaft axes and strap-on crampons. No-one can dispute that John Imbrie and Clint Cummins were total bad-asses. This route intimidates many leaders even now with modern gear. Nov 30, 2017
