Comments: Any idea the name of the climb just right is? It has 2 bolts then straight up a widening crack with some straight in pick placements.
(I will also delete this comment on reply.)

Comments: Although the anchors at the top appear to be setup for rapping back down the route, our 60m didn't seem to reach, we rapped of the back where our rope easily reached the ground.

Comments: Direct Start: Climb the center of the huge triangle flake, then join route at the top. Note: gear is limited. Dicey 5.9, but makes for a nice sustained 5.9 overall.

Location: New Hampshire > * Ice and Mixed Climbing > Painted Walls Ice Climbs > Way in the Wilderness (WI5)

Comments: This climb can also be done as a long single pitch.

Also, when we did it last year (Dec. 2006). You could climb behind the column.

Don't get on this if it is sunny. A party went up after us and we stuck around (and left our ropes up in case of a needed rescue) ... There are some hangers up above the climb that you don't see from the ground. ... these see sun before the rest of the cliff and were streaming down by mid day.

Have fun on this Super classic!
