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.

This climb tends to seep so a cold day might be advantageous.

Location Suggest change

The Mindbender Amphitheater at the north end of the cliffs at Lake Willoughby...to 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..
