Description

This is the ice flow that rarely forms over Scarecrow. Start up the mixed crack Aja. Move right onto the thin ice. Fun moves over the bulge up higher.

If the route was in a lot more, it could be lead. With the conditions we had, there would would be zero pro until about 30 feed up, then bad pro above.

We climbed this Jan 1, 2016. It was about 10°F out that morning. It had been cold for the previous few days. I have never seen anything written about the route before, nor have I seen the route in on previous visits to Rainbow. For all I know some old dog soloed laps on this in 1978.

Location

Look for the flow next to Aja. If it's in, get your tools and run.

Protection

We only TR'd it. In theory it would be leadable. The bottom section was super thin (an inch or two).

For TR anchor we belayed above, anchoring off two small trees far back, then backing up off the tree above Aja. Possibly you could put a screw in on this route as a directional and use the chains above Aja.
