BETA PHOTO: Prestor Pillar is the right hand side of this fat ...

Description 

The farthest ice route right at the Hinterlands... This is a really nice line when its in... A steep nonstop pillar the goes right to the top or the cliff very steep and aesthetic... It would be straight up grade 5 but its not too long...

If you have already done Geographic Factor (the true classic of the area) take a run on this one next time its in...

Location 

Farthest route right of Geographic factor...

Protection 

Regular rack of screws...

Looking at this today it looked way harder than Geographic... it seems when this line is FAT you dont get the rest ledge which kicks it up a notch... that being said, when it is fat it looks like a rad sustainded HARD climb
