Description

A great bucket and edges with good feet will get you to the high first bolt. Well-protected cruxy climbing with good feet but very reachy hand holds gets you up to C2. At C3, move up and left with the usual Rifle sidepulls, edges, and pinches to C5. Another crux climbs up to and past C6 to a blocky ledge out right. Climb up on sustained climbing with some nice holds out left and tricky feet to the chains with fixed biners on them.

Location

Middle Ice Caves.
Deutsches Blut is just right of Irish Blood.

Fun route but definitely not 11a. Did this on the third try - the same number of tries I put in on Fistful of Dollars. Reachy and challenging for sure. A great addition - thanks for another good McGee route. Aug 31, 2014

No way this is 11a. Yeah it's reachy and I'm 5'7", but I've talked to several taller climbers who thought it was 11c. It felt harder than Hawaii Five-O, which I did next. Sep 22, 2013

I had no idea what this was when I got on it but it looked within my ability. I got the onsight and felt it was 11a. My wife pulled a rock off, but for the most part it seemed very clean for such a new route. Thanks for another fun climb. Aug 19, 2013

This is a good new route. It's also fun to climb Irish Blood and finish on the top of this route for a bit longer of 5.10 climbing. Thanks for putting in the work and getting it in! Aug 17, 2013
