Relatively low angle route with bulges, good for aspiring leaders.


The climb is down the canyon from Positive Reinforcement. It is up a short steep snow slow about 40ft right of Midnight Cruiser.


Standard rack of ice screws., there are trees at the top that can be used as anchors. There is also a tree part way up on the left side that can be used for rappels if using only one rope.

From the tree at the top my 70M got us to the bottom.

I suggest rigging a screw anchor to belay your second up above the two trees at the top. This makes belaying less awkward than using the tree the rap anchors on.
