Joel gets a high step, on Hooky.

Ice is on roadcuts off of Hwy 151. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This climbs between the bulges. I soloed it, but could have gotten stubbies in if needed.

If soloing, take a rope and rap off trees at the ledge. It might also be possible to walk off at this ledge with some unfun brush thrashing. I chose to climb a couple of really sketchy - the rock had the consistency of beach sand held together with some spit - but M-easy rock steps above the ledge, hoping the next ledge would afford a better walk off. Didn't see one, so went up a long (probably close to 100') snow slope to the top out. This might not be possible in a less snowy Winter (this was close to a record year here).

Location 

Between the bulges on OAC and D-less-C-more

Protection 

Screws on the ice (luck above)
