Description

Great climb for a first ice lead or as a warmup for harder routes. Due to the wide nature of the flow there are multiple options here ranging from WI2-WI3 as you work from climbers left to right. The majority of the climb is stepped ice with a small (5 foot) curtain ringing the top. The terraces provide ample rest and great position for placing screws. This climb forms from a seep at the top of the cliff and although it is North facing it needs a few days of cold temperatures to get into shape. It may be TR even when conditions are not prime.

Location

Located on the North Face of Whitesides. From the parking lot take the Lowe Trail, located just past the outhouse. Follow this trail past the obvious Three Stooges flow until a fork in the trail is reached. Look through the woods to the right for the wide flow. Look for a faint trail to the base of the climb or continue further up the right trail cutting back towards the "Old Campsite" and to the base (refer to map on main page). Be prepared to deal with thick rhodos if going cross country.

Protection

Assortment of screws 10cm up to 16cm depending on conditions. Build an anchor on vegetation up top. Walk around the flow climbers left to set a TR (refer to map on main page).
