Description

Straight forward climbing for most of it. There is the hollowness of the ice curtain though. Trad gear is reassuring on this kind of ice. The trad gear goes in on the left side where the ice meets the rock. Top off is awkward going up and out left onto the ledge. Then there are trees higher up for anchoring.

Location

Furthest left side climb, so far.

Protection

#7 tri cam and there is a two inch cam location higher up at same stance or three ice screws would suffice.

I love climbing/exploring/recording the hidden "gems" around Rumney. There is never a reason to feel apologetic about it. If it is there... CLIMB IT! I do this a lot with boulder problems and through this quest I have climbed some of my favorite boulders anywhere... even if nobody else will climb them ;) Mar 12, 2013

I'm afraid climbing and recording the obscure has become a bit of a hobby for Bradley and myself this year seeing as though we live at the base of Rattlesnake. If that makes us hobbyists, or obcurists, or some other strange ism, I am yet unsure. It's really just a game we like to play to keep life interesting. Mar 12, 2013

Hi Matt, We did so many of these short climbs up to Bonsai and around here, I don't know what was done or not, by friend or me. I know I hadn't been to the G Spot before. Also most of these ice flows are buried and shorter bulges on decent snow years.
I've been waiting for someone like you to come forward about all this ice but several local veteran climbers don't belong to MP that would know about them from the beginning of climbing here. I'll change it to unknown. Feb 22, 2013

Thanks for recording this guys! I do want to add a little history, I have talked to a couple people about this ice flow and they said they climbed it in the late 90's early 2000's. Regardless thanks for posting the route and getting the information out there. Feb 22, 2013
