Description

Nice moderate route close to the road. A worthy alternative to nearby Kitty Hawk if the latter is crowded.

The last pitch is visible from the road. Park well to the side of the road and hike in to the route. Allow a half-hour for the approach to the base of the route. Without much snow cover the approach through the woods can be a bit of a slog over loose rock.

P1. Up to WI3 with possibly some M-easy moves to surmount a short 85 degree section (pitch crux) near the end of the pitch. Pitch is full 60 meters.

P2. Short (50 feet) pitch on thicker but likely wetter ice. Belay station (cord slung around tree) can be found in situ.

P3. The crux pitch (and really the only reason to get on this route). 50 meters of WI4 ice.

Rap on natural anchors.

Protection

Screws. Natural anchors easy to find for rappels.
