Description

one of the wildest looking ice climbs you'll ever see. due to the winds that whistle thru the Keystone Canyon, huge 'bells' or 'gargoiles' grow from the walls.
weave your way through, past, over, or around them as needed to surmount this Classic route.
rappel from slings on 3" alders on the left.

Protection

depends on your balls: somewhere between 4 & 12 screws.
