This is a flared finger crack in a Ice Cream Scooped cave, it climbs out the roof to a walkoff.


In the main Ice Cave, it is the route that has a piton part way and you climb the finger crack out the cave and top it out.


C3-#00, quickdraw for pin, and a C3-#0. Yellow Alien, blue Alien, purple TCU.

I think this has been sent recently. Sam Elias from Carbondale maybe.

Jay, to my knowledge it has not been sent by Sam. I never asked him and I don't know him, but a few friends in Aspen said that he never did it on gear, and there were a few others trying to get the FA before me at the time. If you find out more info, please let me know. Here is my email:

Jay, I emailed Sam on Facebook about this route, he did do the route, late summer but my ascent was more around July-ish. Hope this clears things up.
