Description Suggest change

The A-Frame is a dirty chimney that climbs up through a tight hole from the base of the Gills Buttress mass, up to the top of the  pillar where Acid Rock, Peyote Blues, etc start.
      From the base of the climb you'll see an obvious large, left leaning block called the Shaft. Climb under the Shaft to the left, up through the small hole, and continue on through the tight, wet, but surprisingly not-dirty chimney through a few actually fun moves. Because of the wetness there is practically no friction in the A-Frame - even by Devils Lake standards.

Location Suggest change

 It is NOT the chimney where Ice starts. It begins on the south side  (down hill side) of the large Acid Rock block.  If you are standing atop the Acid Rock pillar, look down the crack and you'll be looking down the climb,

Protection Suggest change

Probably a good idea- but most would likely just do it without.
