Ragnarock WI4+ M4  Vermont : *Vermont Ice Climbing : ... : 08E - Elephant's Head Area
An amazing classic climb!First pitch is just OK, pitch 2 spices it up, and the top pitch is superb exposed steep ice!P1. WI3/4Angles up and left to the obvious corner with a short mixed section on the right to a bolted anchor.P2. M4(Generally NO ice on this pitch!) Climb straight up to bolted anchors approx 100ft. or continue out right onto ice.P3. WI4/5Angle out right to finish on the main flow or, if the ice is in continue straight up the steep curtain straight to the top!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Vermont
