Spring Loaded is the second formation up Sheep Creek and the first one that will make you smile. The first pitch consists of ice and frozen ground and will take you to thicker ice. From this point you can expect to find short pillars mixed with moderate ice. The upper pillar is visible from the highway and the route ends when you top out on the canyon wall. Descend by walking off right and back down the mountain.
Spring Loaded is protected with ice screws and decended by meens of a walk off to the right.
