Description

P1. Climb the low-angle slab to a good ledge in a cave on the left. Use a single bolt and small TCU anchor (WI3/4, 70').

P2. Climb rock past two bolts to reach the curtain of ice. Belay off screws after the steepness ends (M6 WI5/6, 80').

P3. This is mostly snow climbing with a few small ice bumps. Belay off screws in a cave on the right (WI2, 100').

P4. Climb the pillar, which is steep for maybe 50', then climb some moderate ice that leads to a snow-covered rock finish. Belay off pins to the left (WI4/5, 150').

Descent - we had two 70m ropes. Rap from the pin anchor to the top of P2. V-thread and rap to the base of P1.

Location

About 1/2 mile before reaching the Eureka parking lot off to the left, there is a prominent cleft/gully to the left side of the rock wall.

Protection

Screws, pins, and TCUs.
