In addition to these rules, BOLTING or DEVELOPING the climbing areas any further without express permission from the college is STRICTLY PROHIBITED!
There are three main ice lines of varying difficulty. With thick ice you can avoid any mixed moves but when I climbed it in January 2021 it was pretty thin in spots and I had to use at least crampons on the rock for all three lines. Choose your own adventure up this ice, it's a good place to set up a toprope and practice your ice climbing. Climbing can range between WI2 and WI3 depending on the exact line you take.
Directly between the climber's right side of the main mama wall rock routes and the climber's left side of the rock step used to set topropes on those routes.
