DescriptionMs. Inferno is an awesome short route for bad weather days that is a bit harder and scarier than Bullet. For additional bonus points, bring some ghost pepper salsa.
P1 - (M5+ PG-13) locate a crackless, small corner to the left of the Bullet ice. This is pretty much 15 feet left of the arete that forms the left OW variation of Bullet. Scratch your way up M5+, insecure terrain. It turns from a highball boulder problem into don't fall terrain rather fast. Soon enough protection comes. Aim for a small, M5+ roof. Pull over, and another M5+ mantel leads to a nice stance right below a splitter. It could be easier, it could be harder. Snow was covering everything.
P2 - (M7) thankfully this pitch protects well. Climb the wide, slightly overhanging splitter. This leads to a roof. Cut your feet loose, and do the hard committing mantel. One last M5+ corner leads to the belay atop Bullet.
P3 joins Wharton's additional M6 Bullet pitch.
