Description

Relatively low angle route with bulges, good for aspiring leaders.

Location

The climb is down the canyon from Positive Reinforcement. It is up a short steep snow slow about 40ft right of Midnight Cruiser.

Protection

Standard rack of ice screws., there are trees at the top that can be used as anchors. There is also a tree part way up on the left side that can be used for rappels if using only one rope.

I've done this twice now. A few years ago it was a bit leaner and was certainly a WI2. This year it was fat and felt more like a 3. Nice line. The lines to the right of this climb are excellent as well...and still aren't in Blue Lines 2. Jan 18, 2017

From the tree at the top my 70M got us to the bottom.

I suggest rigging a screw anchor to belay your second up above the two trees at the top. This makes belaying less awkward than using the tree the rap anchors on. Feb 28, 2016
