Description

Great ice climb located in the Upper Gorge. Two variations exist, a WI4 on the left, and the regular WI5. This description accounts the WI5 variation.

Pitch 1: Climb easy ice (WI3) and belay in the cave at the base of the obvious pillar.

Pitch 2: Climb the steep pillar (crux) for about 40 feet, into a cool alcove (optional belay), and then more ice on the right side to lower angled terrain above.

Pitch 3: Climb easy ice (WI3) all the way to the top, below the hyrdo plant chain link fence. This pitch might have some mixed climbing on it on early/late season.

Location

This climb is located in the Upper Gorge, upriver and around the corner from the Vermork bridge. From the parking lot, cross the road and hike down into the gorge, and turn right and hike up river for 5-10 minutes, the climb will be obvious on the left side.

Descent is by hiking along the chain link fence (please do not climb over the fence!), back to the road, and back over the bridge back to the parking lot.

Protection

Ice screws.
