Mt. Nebo Wilderness on south side of Santaquin Canyon. Details

Description

Just to the left of Squash Head. The climb is 10 bolts with a 2 bolt anchor with chains. Bolts are pretty close together and depending on snow levels the first bolt can sometimes be clipped from the ground. The first four bolts bring you up to a ledge, followed by powerful, overhanging climbing. The profile of the climb resembles a martini glass.

Location

Ten feet left of the Squash Head pillar. The ice is visible from the road.

Protection

QDs, and maybe a few skyhooks if aiding. Bring ice gear if you are planning on continuing on Squash Head.
BEWARE OF AVALANCHE DANGER DURING APPROACH!!
