The ice is often thin.


This is the first main ice you see across from Box Canyon on the South side of the road. Rappel from a tree at the top.


Screws and bolt anchors at the top.

One of the first routes established in the canyon. Thank you Virgil Ash for showing me and Paul the area. I revisited the canyon around 1996 and climbed additional ice routes belayed by my new wife Julie, but never gave mention to them. That year produced fat conditions. Great to see so much effort and attention to establishing new lines, especially by Jason.
