Originally climbed as lower part of 'Slow Turning' these moderate pitches offer a variety of terrain as you climb up through a tight rock chimney. Depending upon conditions, I was told this route usually is quite wet but perhaps technique can offer up options (I remained relatively dry). Very fun ATC (all terrain climb) in both approach & climb. Considered to be one of the "easiest" approaches in the valley by comparison...heheh


Small non-descript pullouts beginning at 1.6-1.8 mi. from Ishawooa Mesa Trailhead. Park off road. Climb is in drainage canyon 'Slow Turning'.


Typical screws, bolts at top. Rap will require 2 ropes.

Hi Pablo, If you didn't get to the hangers then you missed the final P. I did this climb but note photo was taken by Aaron & posted with permission. I asked him about the angle and confirmed route, his was better than mine and so chosen. Maybe climb it again & you'll see, Have fun ~k

The photo of Kenny definitely isn't on Stringer... unless there's a different stringer climb in the valley. This climb, at least when I climbed it, was definitely thin the entire way. The widest part to climb was maybe 15 feet wide. Great climb though!
Once you get to the anchors there's a bunch of fun easy climbing farther up. Pretty fun just to screw around on.

Mark - speak to Kenny & Aaron if you have any doubts. Get back to me if any corrections are necessary, thanks -Kirra

The photo of Kenny featured for this route looks similar to what I saw as the first 30 feet of the route. There's a small cave in the lower right of the photo that's consistent with what's at the base of the route, and when we did it there were some small snowy slopes to climbers left of the base from which someone could have taken a photo with this kind of perspective.

That said, the route looks much steeper and fatter in this photo than we found it. However familiar the space around the ice might be, the ice itself looks almost like a totally different route from the one we did.

The picture of Kenny is the 4th pitch that is rarely climbed. Most people bail after the first two.
