Description

This is the rightmost flow in the Precipice Amphitheater and consists of a wide slab of fat, mostly low-angle ice. Sometimes gnarly drips and curtains form just left of it for the brave and burly.

It is good for consolation laps, if the other routes aren't in, and a serious calf pump. It is possible to hike to the top of the middle (and maybe left?) routes from the top of this one.

The trees above the route are far and not situated well for rappelling, so it may be best to v-thread (zero threads, please). A single 70m rope should suffice.

Location

This is the rightmost of three flows on the right side of the Precipice Amphitheater. See the area for details.

Protection

A standard ice rack, a v-thread kit, and one 70m rope.
