Description

Steep, pumpy, wild climbing with multiple free hanging daggers characterizes this route. The FA involved a remarkable onsight performance on the crux pitch from Will.

1) From the end of the raps, climb left into the gut of the gully and up a shield of funky, cauliflower ice to a belay left of the hangers at a fixed pin, 250 feet, WI3.

2) Launch up the overhanging crack system, climbing two wild free hanging daggers and finishing on a steep, thin pillar. After 100 feet, belay in a sheltered alcove with a fixed pin on the left. The rock is generally pretty well-protected, but the ice is a little run out, WI6+ M9 R.

3) Follow the ice to the top, past some thin or incomplete curtains, 130 feet, WI 5+ R.

Location

This route lies on the left wall of the Black Wall Gully. Look for the line of hanging daggers.

Protection

Screws, a single set of cams to #4 Camalot, nuts, and a few pins.
