Private Property/Skin or Hike Approach MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Two pitches, WI 4 130 feet first pitch to a bolted belay/rappel anchor followed by an WI 3 80 foot pitch up ramp-y terrain to the large shelf. Tree belay/rappel. First pitch belay anchor is on a left facing shallow buttress which usually has exposed rock, and, is to the left of the summer rock climbs. Most likely very thin in spots.

Location 

At the left side of Orangutan Wall. Located to the left of Get Whacked. In Jason’s ice guide, this would be the right hand route listed as Route 5, "two potential routes (thin smears)".

Protection 

Selection of short ice screws.
