Description

Start on Amphibian, continue straight up through the middle stepped ceiling and straight out the seam in the upper roof, and continue straight up to the upper overhang to attain the thin ice and the top. The crux is lockoffs in the three to four inch ice at the top, though there is a strenuous, six foot, deadpoint move through the roof.

Location

Start on Amphibian. Finish at the bolt anchor at the top; lower off with 70 meter rope.

Protection

17 bolts.
