Viewed from Rt 9N this is the "landmark-location" climb for the area; a large flow over slab.

Most of the time it doesn't touch down, but one way to climb what is there is to lower off from the top after climbing one of the other full-length routes like Unexpected Pleasure, either take turns lowering down and climbing it, or both rap (2 ropes) and climb from whatever stance presents itself.

If it has touched down, climb it as an either and additional, or alternate, pitch2 to Unexpected Pleasure. It's left and a bit up from the P1 belay.


This is the flow you see from the road.


TR or the usual stuff

Even if the ice doesn't reach entirely to the bottom, judicious use of the cedar tree on the right can get you up onto the slab without too much trouble. Jul 7, 2016
