Description

Climb the narrow curtain of ice after dry tooling over bulges. More technical than strenuous. Very grade dependent on conditions. This ascent was severe. The climb can be mostly ice except for passed the tree. I've seen this flow a while and the ice practically disappears above the tree. Here there are grasses and dry point technique is needed instead. The ice gets thick again at the finish.

Location

Highest on the right side of lowest tier looking up from the road. There is pink ribbon tied on a root at its base.

Protection

a couple of screws, medium/small stoppers and a small tree. Rappel from rings of 'Bumpin the Gate' sport route or walk off.

This is just left of Bumpin the Gate in the "mossier" section of the crag (not polished from sport climbing). All trad (a few solid small nut placements before a small tree you can sling, and at least one or two solid screws at the top; you can move right at the end and use solid rings for "Bumpin the Gate" to repel off or set up tope-rop, or continue up to the trees, and walk off to the right back around to the base.
