This is just like the route to the left - a funky start, followed by good stone. It is worth doing.

No FA beta is available, so I've taken the liberty to give the route a name more interesting than "un-named". If anyone has FA beta, let me know.

The name is a tribute to a Gallatin Canyon (Montana) route by Bill Dockins, named after an ice cream flavor.


This is the second route right of Tears on the North Wall (the shady wall around the corner from The Prow).


6 bolts (mostly welded cold shuts).

Once you get through the crumbly start, this is a very good route. the moves up top were excellent.

This route is in the Rifle guide as "Magic Carpet Ride" 11b. Fun route on the upper half.

Sick climb with the last two bolts being the crux as two boulder problems.

Incredible stone on the headwall. Fun, slight techy climbing through the crux.
