Description

You can pick out this line from the road pretty easily. A fat flow of ice just left of waimea that looks like good fun and isn’t too tough looking either. These assumptions are correct.

The tricky part is figuring out how to find it. The most straight forward way is to climb K9 which leads directly to the base of this one. But K9 is harder and more dangerous. Dr. whom (not sure if it had a name already. Let me know and I’ll update it) is mellow and generally much safer when in good shape. So if you want to do only this pitch it makes sense to rappel in to get after it.

Location

Located on the upper right hand side of Triple Corners. This is essentially a second pitch to K9.

Either climb that route and continue up. Or approach by walking past the Jimmy Cliff slabs heading west. Just after the slabs there is a gully (which may be rappelled to access China Shop) go just past that gully and rappel down a slab with some ice visible. The ice gets fatter as you get toward the base. 

Protection

A handful of screws.
