Walk in the Forest Snowy conditions on 2/11/2017

Description 

A nice big chunk of ice with multiple options, usually ranging from WI3 to WI4+. Room for multiple parties.

Location 

Walk past the amphitheater area, thru the trestle cut where the practice slabs are. The first big bulge you'll see up in the woods is Lost in the Forest; a few hundred feet past this is Walk.

Protection 

standard rack of screws, 6-9 maybe

Found the climb to be tougher than a grade 3. It really depends on the line you take, generally the middle-left is the easiest. Much bigger and longer than it looks in any of these photos just for a warning. Pretty exposed near the top as you can look out and see the mountains and road out and below you. Awesome climb.

I'd call the easiest line WI3, on the left. Most of the lines are 3+, with some harder options on the far right. There's room for maybe 5 ropes total.

I would agree with Alexander. The line I led seemed like the easiest available, and it felt like 3+. It was much longer than it looked, and somewhat sustained, too.

Be aware that the right side is longer than 30m. Too long to TR with a 60m rope.
