A true frozen river. This route was the first ice route climbed in the entire Orient Bay region. It is a "must do." And as such it can be very busy. Easy and varied terrain gives you a wide selection of climbing possibilities. Choose a side and head up. There is a head wall about 150ft up that gives you a taste of WI3 but the rest of the climb is very mellow. Have fun!References: "Ice Climbs of the Lake Superior Region" by Eric Landmann and Don Hynek, Granite Publishing...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
