Yeah Jon, I wasn't too sure about the grade. It's steep, but short. So does that warrant a WI3 vs 4? For sure the steepest line at G. Dodge. Mar 8, 2013

Wow. First time Remo hasn't been a raging sandbagger.

Of course nobody knows or cares what ice ratings really mean anyway. Mar 8, 2013

short, but vertical...main point is short. WI 3 at the most I would say. Mar 8, 2013
my understanding is that WI 3 is up to vertical, this being vertical, though short, is still vertical. so i would say remo's original grading was accurate. Mar 9, 2013

Length of the vertical has a lot to do with the grades as well. A soda straw is vertical if standing straight up, yet you could walk over it. Would you give it a 3? or actually a grade of 5, as it is completely uniform and would have zero rests if it were pure ice? And that is why ice is so interesting as a medium! Apr 3, 2013
