Description

Ice forms in the back of a narrow chimney in the back of the Triptych drainage.

You could do it as one big pitch(50m) or split it into two. The first half is narrow enough that in thinner conditions you can chimney off the back wall.

It's similar to Skylight, but it's shorter and the chimney isn't as deep.

Location

North side of the valley.
Triptych drainage.
Head towards Hostile Takeover, climb or walk around the first step of ice (15 feet). Look to the right and see the icy chimney.

Protection

Screws.
Some sections may require stubbies.
Can be rappelled in one 50m pitch with two ropes, or two single-rope raps.
Rappel off v-threads.
