I think "3+ to 4" might better describe the grade, but you be the judge. It all depends on conditions.

START: (See Photo) Below a large, left-facing corner about 60-70 ft uphill and right of the start of Power Play.

P1 - Climb up usually thin ice to the left of the corner itself. Near / at the top of the corner move right and up (crux) on either mixed terrain or thin ice. Then up. Belay where you want, probably off of trees.

Rap off, or...P2 - Up and left-ish over bulges and then a groove. Up left to the top.


Usual stuff

Perhaps this is a variation, but it's the way I've always done it. At the top of the corner, you step left, then go straight up to a roof at the top of the corner about 80' up. Go up the right wall of the corner around the roof, then straight up to the trees. A long pitch with good rock gear to 3" (usually). Jul 10, 2016

It was a while ago...maybe there was a step left before the move right. Each year the ice and the rock will decide the best course. Jul 10, 2016
