This route has a stout start but gets progressively easier. Go up shallow corners to bulg at about half height. Pull through bulge to gain rest stance. Follow chossy rock to ice and climb ice to top (bolts on the right). In a thin/dry year, follow bolts up narrow ledges to the top (awkward and kinda dirty). This route is much better with ice on the upper section…


Unfinished route next Big Blue


10 quickdraws for bolts. If ice is thick, bringing a couple short screws is recommended. Be forewarned: the ice at the tops is almost always detached and sun rotted so it’s often best to just break it of and find the bolts (right side).
