Leading the smear on Valentines Day.

  • Description 

    Thin slopey ice line that comes in late season.


    Ice screws for lead, webbing for anchor. It's best to build a long anchor on this since there is about 5 ft of mud and roots between the top of the ice and the top of the cliff.

    Ice on wall partially remelted and pulled some fist-sized rocks and sludge in our direction while there for Homer's today. Some ice forming but not anywhere near ready to go.
