Be the first on your block to get a great first ascent.

This is next to the Water Music on the north side of Chair Rock. I led this thing on aid a couple of times and then top roped and then worked on it a total of a dozen times. I got very close to freeing it. Maybe just a move or two short. Never tried to lead it. I conveniently left for NYC for grad school. I suspect it has been been ignored for years.

I think this could be a great, hard, Platte classic. Short and to the point from beginning to end.

Eds. From Allen Hill, this is distinct from Thin Ice. It also may not have seen a free ascent yet.


I put some anchors in. I think a couple of pins. Might need to be beefed up. No easy way to the top.


Thin thin thin. Brass nuts, off sets, and TCUs. Hell, bang in a knifeblade if need be! I say go for it.

Felt it was somewhere around 5.12b/c on TR and a hell of a lot harder placing gear on lead (haven't done it clean). I replaced the webbing and added two rap rings to the two-bolt anchor during the last week of of June.

Also, per Allen's comment above, I do not think there is any need for a fixed pin on this route. Just my two cents.

This route now goes free. I'm calling it "Adrift with the Bajau."

Way to go Jason! I'm happy it finally got finished. I certainly had no interest in it at my advance age.

Thanks Allen, sorry I didn't make a better effort this summer at connecting with you so you could have come out a few times before I sent it.
