Getting on the money pitch of Wowie Zowie. Photo ...

Description 

Pitch one can either start up the long sustained line on the left or connecting a series of vertical pillars on the right. Follow these features for 55 to 60 meters and build a belay.
Pitch 2. This is the glory patch and one of the most sustained and enjoyable pieces of ice that most people will ever get on. There are normally spectacular hanging icicles that involve some maneuvering to get around. The last section is vertical fat perfection. 55 - 60 meters will bring you to the aldrs at the top of the climb. Repel the route

Location 

This route is the main ice featcher located two miles above the steel bridge. It can be seen on the right (east) side of Mineral Creek Canyon.

Protection 

Ice screws.
Rap off alders or V-thread.
