Description

A nice big chunk of ice with multiple options, usually ranging from WI3 to WI4+. Room for multiple parties.

Location

Walk past the amphitheater area, thru the trestle cut where the practice slabs are. The first big bulge you'll see up in the woods is Lost in the Forest; a few hundred feet past this is Walk.

Protection

standard rack of screws, 6-9 maybe

Found the climb to be tougher than a grade 3. It really depends on the line you take, generally the middle-left is the easiest. Much bigger and longer than it looks in any of these photos just for a warning. Pretty exposed near the top as you can look out and see the mountains and road out and below you. Awesome climb.

I'd call the easiest line WI3, on the left. Most of the lines are 3+, with some harder options on the far right. There's room for maybe 5 ropes total. Jan 16, 2015

I would agree with Alexander. The line I led seemed like the easiest available, and it felt like 3+. It was much longer than it looked, and somewhat sustained, too. May 5, 2015

Be aware that the right side is longer than 30m. Too long to TR with a 60m rope. Jan 23, 2017

You pretty much want a 70m rope to TR these lines. A 60 could do it, maybe with long slings on top, but a 70 lets the belayer belay to the side of the climber's falling ice.

Also, most parties led to the top of the climb. There's supposed to be a walk-up around to the left, but a party that was there when we were couldn't find it. Perhaps (?) one does the 30-40 ft of NEI-2 on "Lost in the Forest" and then walks 200+/- feet to the right to the top of "Walk in the Forest"??

The far left line gets almost no sun...thus can be more brittle/hard than the rest of the area. I thought even this easiest line was a bit harder than Frankenstein Standard's "crux" pitch. Feb 24, 2019
