DescriptionThis is a fun new way to reach the wall ice behind The Fang. This route lies directly between 7th Chakra to the left and Seventh Tentacle to the right. Follow the 3 bolts up into the overhanging daggers and pull the curtain onto steep ice. Continue up the center/left edge to new chain anchors that hang from the roof above. This is an excellent route with positive holds and possible chimney moves on the free-hangers. Good thing is, you don't need the extra 5 balls to do the route.
LocationWorking left from the obvious Cupcake Corner: Frigid Inseminator, 7th Tentacle, 7th Testicle, 7th Chakra, and Little Higher. This route starts at the left end of the low, obvious block/ledge that sticks out from the wall, 15' above your head.
Protection3 bolts and a handful of medium screws. There are chain anchors above in the roof.
2015 note: the 3rd bolt has been somewhat compromised by a section of rock that fell out. It will soon be replaced in "better" stone.
2016: the 3rd bolt has been replaced in better (remember it's Vail) rock. Enjoy!
