Description Suggest change

A two pitch mixed addendum to a Cash Joyce solo. A gorgeous mostly hidden 550 foot ice apron (Cash Joyce route) leads to gradually steepening ice in a slot canyon where you will find a 2 bolt belay. The crux pitch climbs connected/disconnected daggers with great stemming to pass several small roofs.  Crux is the third offwidth roof (bolts or large cams depending on if the crack is iced over), 2 bolt belay. One final pitch of M5R past disconnected daggers leads to the hobbit forest at the top of the cliff (tree belay).

Location Suggest change

The second major south facing route on the North side of Godwin/4th of July creek.

Protection Suggest change

Standard clean mixed rack to #4, 1 spectre, screws including stubbies, a couple long slings.
