Climber on Artificial Gravity.


Artificial Gravity is an alternative finish to Power Play. Combined with the "direct" on Power Play, it is one of the most difficult pure ice lines at Chapel Pond, and the first WI6 in the park.

The route forms by spray blowing onto the overhanging rock and forming blobs. Needless to say, it's a rare former.

From the top belay of Power Play, step left and climb ice blobs to more substantial, overhanging icicles.

The route is considerably easier once somebody else has hacked a path through the icicles.


See Power Play.


Ice screws and tied off blobs and thread-throughs. No rock gear is available (although you might need it on the pitches below).
