Once in a Blue Moon and Kyle's Kling.


Start at the base of the pillar and go up staying right of the vertical section of ice. Can be thin, especially at the start.


At the mouth of the Narrows, 70 feet right of Disney Land. Start is behind concrete wall housing part of the beige siphon tube on the south side of US Highway 34. Top out up gully and rap off of a tree, or find the anchors above the overhang and rap, or walk off east.


Short stubby screws in small ice mounds.

Once in a Blue Moon goes up the right side, foregoing the vertical section.
