Description

A short but steep ice playground. The rock is marginal, decomposing granite layers. Mixed routes have been top roped, but likely won't be led.
The ice comes in only after extended freeze/thaw cycles. The wall faces south over the Kootenai valley. There are a handful of burly pillars that have been known to form.

Location

1.5 miles up Ball creek road (from Westside road). Directly under the road. Park at pullouts before or after the ice (if the snow allows you to drive this far!)

Protection

Great trees immediately below the road provide suitable top anchors. Please don't leave slings/tat on permanently.
