Leading the Joy

Description 

On the right side of the Lower Bench, between Pillars of the Community and Bozo's Revenge, is a long starting pitch with a steep curtain below and a pillar above. The route runs up this section in two pitches and continues up the drainage to multiple shorter steps of ice. The drainage forks at one point and the main pitches are found on the left, though there's a fun pitch or more on the right as well. Continue up to the "Joy"—a steep, fun pitch of ice high in the drainage.

Location 

Right end of the Lower Bench, between Pillars of the Community and Bozo's Revenge

Protection 

Full rack of screws and v-thread materials
