Description

Start on the left side of a huge, detached flake with a sickening, steep start. Pull sweet pockets down low and feel around for the sicker ones higher on this funtastic feature. Grab the outside of the flake with left-handed sidepulls and gain your best rest.

Stand on a tiny ledge on the edge of the flake and start STEMMING! Transition to the face with some committing two finger pockets.

Pull through a series of kick-ass pockets with a few technical moves and gain altitude well above and to the left of the flake. The juggy holds start appearing about halfway up the face and keep getting bigger all the way to the anchors.

Definitely a unique Spearfish Canyon experience worth having!

Location

Park at Shadowlands and cross the road into Ice Box. Head for the obvious flake to the left of the sick, overhung boulder. Frosted flake starts on the left side of the huge detached flake.

Protection

Take a dozen quick draws. Stick clip first bolt.

Very bouldery start. Moves would be 10+ or 11- if higher up on route. Will be a little better when it cleans up. Oct 12, 2014
