#21 is Penguins. DAS standing above the anchors.


Short vertical face with thin pro to the same ledge used for "Sidewinder." Protect in the "Sidewinder" crack and step into thin air to commit to the overhanging lip and get into the vertical crack above. Airy and scary, but what a thrill! Easier than it looks, but you'll need a cool lead head for it. Named because of how cold (and snowy) it was when we sent this.


Vertical crack that leads to the anchors.


Single rack with doubles from 0.75 to #3.

So fun to get on this route again -- wonderfully airy and a total surprise (given that I apparently set it) at how smoothly it goes. Wow! Hi rec for a moderate all trad line for this all trad wall.
