First pitch of Whimper Wall.

Description 

A nice route that forms regularly. It can be a good alternative to the crowds that sometimes invade the Weeping Wall. Two pitches of great ice separated by a snow ledge is what you'll find.

P1: Great ice starts out steep and eases off as you go. Belay from a good stance about 10m below the snow ledge.
P2: Climb to the ledge then traverse to the base of the next pitch and set up a belay.
P3: A pitch of excellent ice leads to the top.
P4?: Rarely, another pitch forms.

Location 

The route is located about 200m to the right of the Weeping Wall and it's dog-leg shape is obvious. Park below the route and hike up through trees to the base. Rappel from v-threads.

Protection 

Screws and chord for v-threads. Rumor has it some bolts exist but we didn't find any. Belay from screws.
