At the top after the send.


Named for a wild scout in Dales quorum in the 80s who he found up on the schoolroom cliffs one day with a buddy but no real gear. Consistently alternates between fun big moves to sequences which require more balance. Sustained climbing to the top. Impeccable rock quality like the rest of Ice Wall. The route originally went left to share an anchor with Chicken Chipolte, which makes a better lead, but it looks like someone came in and threw in some chains directly above the route so TR is an option. A must do if you spend any time at the crag!


South-facing like the others. Its the route you will come to 1st after the scramble around the corner with the old metal cable, the furthest to the right of the 3 routes on the west side. This wall is directly above Sesame St. Good setup is provided for your belay to clip into since the deck is anything but level.


5 Bolts. Chains.

Cool. Didn't know the history on this route. Easily one of my favorites in Ogden.
