Description10 feet left of the prominent prow of rock that defines the left side of Duofold is a thin runnel of ice that comes down through a small corner and covers a vegetated slab. Climb this thin runnel, to a thicker slab below a body length Pillar. Top out onto a rock slab
Here we belayed off of a dead/ dying tree and some nuts in a corner. From this belay walk left along the margin of the ice and head up the fat finish of Bloodline to rappel tree.
A mixed option straight up would be possible with more rock gear
The 3rd edition guidebook description for Pikeline fits this climb perfectly, despite the fact that a climb 100'+ to the right is currently known as Pikeline. Anybody know the history here? or this climb's true name? There is a very old (lichen covered) sling at our first pitch belay.
