The start is bouldery with a stretchy stem move off a stein pull. You can get a semi-solid hook beneath some turf and mantle. I found a thin drip over some more turf that took a stubby and a screamer. Next, head up and left over a blank slab with no protection for about 40 feet. This section is M2+. You can get a hex or tricam in before pulling the last few moves to the ice drip. We hit thin conditions, but there was a narrow column of ice beneath and to the right of some chandelier formations. The drip goes at WI3/4 for about 30 feet. The final section is another blank slab covered by a thin blanket of snow to some tree anchors.

There is another short WI4 ice drip directly above if you want to do a second pitch, but the mixed climbing ends at the trees.

I have no idea what this climb is actually called or any info on the FA, I just know that it was one of the most fun lines in the Lincoln Falls area. There were anchors at the trees, but the fall line has ice nearly the whole way down. This line starts further right and traverses up and left over the first slab into the fall line.


This is a mixed line to the left of the Bowling Alley. Traverse the steep rock band to climber's left of the alley, and start by the overhanging rock ledge. There is a large spruce alone on the only flat spot below the rock.


2 or 3 screws (1 stubby), nuts, tricams or hexes (the cracks are snow covered and icy).
