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.


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.


Screws. Tree anchor.
