DescriptionIf you've been tr-ing in the playground all day and realize you just haven't been trying hard enough, this could be the climb for you. If your clothes are all nice and clean from the impeccable blue ice all around and that's a problem, this could be the climb for you. If you love crack climbing and the winter is just dragging on, this could be the climb for you.
Jam, chicken-wing, grab, hook, torque, and cam your way up the wide crack/flake up over a slight bulge (crux). If you drop a tool here almost impaling your belayer, don't worry, you can finish with one tool and your belayer is totally fine. Gain a stance at the top of the crack, then choose your chossy exit. I went left, I think you can go straight ahead too. Bring up your second, then rappel from an anchor to you left, to your right into the playground, or walk off right.
