Access Issue: Potential road closures in winter. Details


Pitch 1: Either climb the first pitch of Cleo's and traverse right on large ledge or climb the direct Cesarean Start at 5.10 (two bolts, ice screws, a bird beak and some finger sized cams for this variation). Bolted anchor.

Pitch 2: Climb through powerful bulge, clipping two bolts, to good stance.  From here clip bolt and traverse hard left to dangler (if you go straight up here it is Exploratory Lap). Clip more bolts, get on the dagger and ride it to the top. Originally A3, 5.8 WI 6 with only one bolt before the traverse.

Two rope rappel from trees to anchor on top of pitch 1

Named for the stitches Aaron was sporting from a recent surgery.


Between Cleo's and The Matriarch, the largest most obvious ice dagger.


Bolts, ice screws. Small/medium cams and beak if doing direct start
