Description

A shorter and lower angle piece of ice than other routes in the Amphitheater/Mummy area, Mummy I is a great place for instructing newer climbers, first leads, or simply getting in a few easy pitches.  It is wide enough for 2-3 top ropes and has a comfortable base area.

Location

This climb can be approached two different ways:

  • From the Amphitheater, take the trail beyond Fat Chance that heads towards Mummy II/Scepter.  Just after entering the woods and crossing the creek, take a left off the main trail and drop down into the small open basin.  Across the basin and over a small hill is the route, less than 5 minutes from Fat Chance.
  • From the Hyalite Canyon trail, you can shortcut to the bottom of Mummy I and avoid walking all the way around the Amphitheater.  Just after the normal winter "shortcut," look for a boot pack heading into the trees on the left.  Follow this through the trees on a gradual uphill, which will lead you to the open basin just to the right of the climb.  This can be a poor choice in deep snow.

Protection

Thick ice, should be good screw placements.
