Description

Unique moves and a squirmy ice-chimney make this pitch a memorable one! The difficulty and character of the route can vary wildly depending on how much ice is in the chimney.

Scramble up a snow ramp onto a ledge in the depths of the chimney. Some chicanery involving stemming or thin ice on the left-hand wall (crux) gains a narrow chimney. Placing screws and generally moving upward through this bit can be a struggle depending on conditions. Squirm up and out of the chimney, up easy snow to a tree anchor.

Location

Located on the sunny wall on the far right side of the Amphitheater area. It is the obvious chimney feature on the left margin of this small sub-area.

Protection

Screws. Tree anchor.
