The route loosely follows the red line. I couldn't see the bolts in the picture so it's off by a little, but it's close.

Comments: I was up there last night and the upper flow is in. The ice is great, super plastic, sink the tools to the hilt with one go!

Comments: The first pitch of this climb sucks. Awkward and as far from smooth as possible. The rest of the climb was pretty fun though, especially pitch three.

Comments: The bottom of this route has sweet jams, once you hit the offwidth though I think everyone leaves a little skin. Ouch...

Comments: This was my first trad lead and it was sweet! Nice long route so lots of practice placing all sorts of gear. I mean everything, nuts, tri cams, hexes, and cams. The crack gets bigger as you go up and [definitely] bring the 3 Camalot, clutch before the chockstone. enjoy
