Description

This route starts 30 feet to the left of Quinn The Eskimo in a notch of rock. the first 30 feet are mixed and follow a smear of ice on blocky rock. from here a section of snow leads to lower angled ice with many options, and finally to a 20 foot vertical section at the top. The final portion is the crux.

Location

This route starts 30 feet to the left of Quinn The Eskimo in a notch of rock. The start has a log across it a few feet up. Park at the beer walls lot and walk towards Positive Reinforcement and take a right.

Protection

Standard Ice Rack and rock pro for start. Ends at a Rap anchor on a tree, two rappels to the ground.

Not really that mixed for the first bit when it's in, I used maybe two feet on the rock. Definitely a worthwhile route, the first bit is a cool squeeze of ice and then you get to cruise up a long and easy flow that steepens with each bit of ground gained until you hit the vertical section at the tippy top. Very fun. The second rappel station had a pretty tiny ass screw-link to rap off. I left a carabiner there for something beefier. Mar 5, 2016
