Description

This is a neat, little route that looks easy, then 'seams' tougher than it looks, and then ultimately ends up being somewhat in the middle of those extremes.

Begin on the right side of the cave, with fun climbing that arcs up and left to get past the first bolt. Cool, technical, flared seam climbing gets you through the next 2 bolts and deposits you at a short runout section. This looks a little daunting, but the climbing unfolds nicely to get you to the 4th bolt. Traverse right past a bolt, and then go straight up through a hand crack/bulge boulder problem that is protected by a bolt.

This little route deserves to get more traffic. It is fun, has a nice, little staging cave, and has zero approach. Do it!

Location

This is the leftmost route on The Icebox. It is directly above a perfect staging area cave.

Protection

6 bolts and anchors. A hand-sized piece (#1 or #2 Camalot) can be used at the upper bulge to get to the last bolt. Really small gear could possible be used in the flared seam if wanted.
