either toprope or DWS. For the solo, if you peel off at the top (don't) you'd fall 20 feet, glance off a sloping ledge and fall another 20 feet into the icicle. if you managed to push yourself off as you fell it would be a clean 40 foot fall. Look at it and judge for yourself. Either way, fun powerful moves on good holds with a thinner rollover finish, could be some lichen. Send it!


prow of rock, starts from end of jumping ledge and traverses 10 feet before heading up


3 bolts on top, no chains

Do you really need to tell us the rating is R if you solo it.

it's a DWS. I'm not familiar with DWS ratings but wanted to make it clear to any DWS hopefulls that it's not a good place to "try it out" I'll remove it if it really matters. for what it's worth I think it's a fantastic route with big air, if your up for it go for the solo! it'd be a proud accomplishment. I want to get it wired before I give it a go sans rope.

By the way, I'm not sure I agree with the description. I made it past the roof yesterday. So I just pulled the roof, got to the sloping crack, and fell off. It was about a 40 foot fall. But unless you fall low and completely sraight down, you won't hit the ledge. It isn't the cleanest fall, but it doesn't get much cleaner deep water soloing.

I've popped off annie a few times, always a clean water landing. Once in late August my feet brushed the bottem, but no injury... The water is very cold!
I think you have to get your hand in just the right spot in the crack if you want Annie's Climax.
