New England's first WI6 and a fine one indeed. It's possible to do it as a single pitch with a 70-meter rope but there is an excellent belay a little more than halfway up.

P1: Climb the 4+/5 first pitch on ice that tends to be steep but bulgy to an excellent belay cave. Even if it's raining down from above you can sneak in and stay dry.

P2: Pull back out onto the column and continue up, gaining the free hanging curtain any way you can. It hardly lets off and whether it's 5 or 6 depends on how the final curtain forms.


Locate the center flow in the Mindbender Amphitheater. Call of the Wild is the left side of the massive middle flow. Obvious as it gets.


Screws aplenty
