Description

More serious than I thought. Climb the ice bulges or go left direct. I chose a bulge to a ramp to a chimney likeness of ice bulges then the pleaded like curtain crux at the top. The crux was bad ass steep with much kicking for my left foot placements, then finishing with tools in below freezing temperature leafy dirt. I did a high stepping out of there technique and got only the single crampon tip over the lip. That was good and plenty. It was done. No rope solo.

Location

Top far right side beyond the '5.8 Crag' there is plenty more crag uphill. After the climb walk up to the traverse trail and go east back to the junction of the 5.8 Crag trail.

Protection

Four screws and I probably would have used three.
