Description

Another route that must have been climbed several times over the years. It would make a lousy summer rock climb. However, when filled with water ice, the gully makes for an awesome winter climb.

Start by climbing under the Swordfish Lipstick chockstone. 25 meters of steep snow and low angle water ice is followed by 25 more meters of superb steep mixed climbing on good rock and water ice. Pitch 2: easy climbing with a stout mixed crux of about twenty feet or so.

Location

Climb the gully that marks the start of Swordfish Lipstick. About eighty feet west from "The Ice Climb"

Protection

Ice screws, medium sized rack, some pins (the hatchety type seemed the best)
