The route.

Description 

It takes a while for this one to form up, and its full formation is often delayed by regular top roping.

Start up a slight corner/ramp on the far left side of the ice. This section is often quite thin and requires some delicate climbing. The ice fattens up just before a big ledge. Above the ledge climb steepening ice and stay left, passing a bulge or two before getting to an anchor about 35m up on the prow of a boulder.

Location 

This is the left-most and steepest pure ice route on Chouinard Falls. To descend rappel or be lowered from the anchors or top out and walk off to the right.

Protection 

Ice screws. Early in the season some rock gear could be used to protect the beginning and maybe above the ledge. The belayer can keep away from most falling ice by staying down and left of the base of the route, near the litter.
