Description

This blonde wall on the upper, right-hand side of The Ice Box is considered its flagship area. This climb has the distinction of being the best route on the wall.

Starts out slabby and flows to a headwall where all hell is frozen over and unleashed for your enjoyment. Sidepull crimps and other bombastically, tiny holds will get your attention and make you whip yourself silly.

And its not over until its over. If you have just enough time to sample what 5.12c in Spearfish Canyon tastes like then this is actually a very good representation of the quality found within this grade. It might not be the best 5.12c in Spearfish Canyon...but it is the best 5.12c at The Ice Box...and its a two minute hike from the car.

Location

Right hand most side of the sharp, yellow rock formation just behind and to the right of the sick, overhung boulder just on the other side of the road from The Shadowlands parking lot.

Protection

Bring a dozen draws.
