Description

The highball bouldering of ice climbing? A novelty route for sure.

As described in SP Parker's Eastern Sierra Ice guide - "If you're lucky, you'll find a 60 meter high [typo - should be 60 FEET], 4-6 feet wide ice streak that starts out vertical for the first 12 feet." Above that first 12 vertical feet, the angle mellows to maybe 50 degrees and two variations are possible. The left fork is likely to contain more/better ice than the right. We lapped it a few times and did both variations to get our moneys worth.

Location

Contrary to the Ice guide, this climb is NOT on Wrangler Rock, which is nearly a quarter mile away from here. It is on the north side of this "Jabba's Party Barge" formation, easily seen from the steep road on the backside parking.
