LocationThis route follow the iced up, right-facing ramps/corners in the center of the wall, trending left for a mixed finish. Start at the small ice flow just down and left from the litter at The Chouinard Wall and finish just right of Cave Man on The Main Wall.
DescriptionP1: Climb the initial ice flow, then move left and up across broken ground to the iced up, right-facing ramps/corners. Follow these to the big snowy ledge 2/3 of the way up. Build an anchor here. There are several old rap stations.
P2: Move left and climb up to the small detached ice pillar under the prominent "diving board" rock feature. Climb up the pillar and onto a ledge. From here you have two options. The easier one is to move left across a ledge and dry tool up to and over a roof at the end of the ledge, passing a fixed pin. A short section of mixed climbing takes you to the top from here. For a more impressive finish move right and climb up onto the next diving board. There is an alternate belay on the ledge above the ice pillar that some use for this finish.
