On the ice blob.


While really a variation to Bullet, this pitch is brilliant and significantly easier than Bullet. As such, it seems to deserve its own route page. This may well be the best grade 4 pitch that I have climbed in the park.

Climb the first pitch of Bullet until about 10 feet below the anchor. Step left onto the blob of ice on the left wall, climbing over this into a handcrack that leads to a small alcove. Rather than climbing up the ugly looking, wide crack above, exit the alcove on flakes to the left, and climb straight up to the slabby terrain, joining Bullet again before the anchor.


This route climbs the left wall of the Bullet dihedral.


Some screws including some short ones and a standard rack to #2 Camalot. A knife blade or lost arrow might be nice up top to provide top rope protection through the final engaging bit of climbing.
