The route.

Description 

This route looks like crap from most locations but is surprisingly fun.

P1. Climb the rocky terrain, following the most fun climbing to the terrace below the iced up chimney. If you are lucky, there will be bits of ice here and there, M3 80m.

P2. Move the belay to below the icy chimney, 35m.

P3. Climb the icy chimney. There is gear to be had in the chockstone-esque feature and then really good gear on the left wall about 8 feet higher. Belay below steps of thin rolling ice, M5 35m.

P4. Climb the most fun line up the ice, WI3 90m.

Location 

Look for a smear and an iced up chimney north east of the ranger cabin below Chasm Lake.

Protection 

Regular rock rack and maybe a screw or two. A couple of pins are nice to have.
