Description

From the base of the flow, several options exist. The leftmost being the easiest and longest, the right side being steeper and longer. A 60M rope will allow one to rap via the right side of the flow (rope stretcher) Longer ropes required for other lines. Parties on the Center and Left side lines were using two ropes to TR/Rap.

Although this area can absorb several parties and is a great place for easy ice, there is a significant Objective Hazard from above. Because the cliff above is overhung, there are a fair amount of large icicles (often referred to as DEATH-CICLES) formed above. These will fall periodically throughout the day over The Devils Punch Bowl (WI2+) and send large ice down to the belay areas. Not a great place for pets.

Protection

Several Ice screws, Long Screws would be desirable for the wet ice at the top.
