In the crux - Harderline.
This is an awesome oldie. Follow left-arching crack with great gear and TERRIBLE feet - man, that rock is polished. With difficulty, scamper out left until you can get to some good secure picks and thankfully - some good feet. Now blast up the WAY more secure, vertical crack in left-facing corner with great stems and more good gear. Top out the ice pillar and and continue above through AWESOME overhanging hand/finger crack, with great gear and strenuous climbing until you can stab a foot over to the ice and milk the stem. Now, work up ice and out steep pillars and top out build anchor on great ledge. Maybe the best single pitch of harder mixed climbing in the ice park! Go get it.
It is just below the Pick 'o the Vick
and starting straight across from Bi-Polar, another great oldie.
A single set of cams to a #2 Camalot with an extra couple finger-sized cams and a set of medium-large stoppers. Don't forget to bring a couple ice screws. If you're going up through the steep upper crack, bring along another set of Camalots to a #2 and you should be good.
