Comments: Hey Ryan, Sarah is spot on! Whales is to the left of Lions. It's the thin slab of ice 20 feet to left of Lion's on the Beach.

What's cool about it? Whales is as tall as Lions but takes no gear.

Now you know where.. Time to get after it. Make sure hit Tromping in the Tulips afterwards. That's a 3+ too. The route is 75 feet to left of Whales. It starts with traversing climber's right up a ledge then across a tree keep right up to thin ice and frozen moss to the top. Rap down.. There's an an... more >>

Comments: Be sure to place a screw before topping out after big snows. Slides have knocked climbers off the top before.

I've climbed this when it's in 5 condition and when it's been more like a 3+. This route forms differently all the time.

Comments: One word.. Awesome! This route was usually fat at this time. A few dry tool moves at the beginning protected by a pin. low angle snow to good vertical ice (at this time) then comes the victory lap to the top. You end up climbing over a tree at the top. New rap anchor!

+1 Simon's comments. The mixed moves are easy but mandatory. You will be climbing better balanced if you stem off the rock on the middle section. This makes screw placements or cleaning much easier.

Be cool if you park across ... more >>

Comments: Hot Shot is a solid 4. There are plenty of rests when picked out but a 4 by definition. I don't see many 3+ leaders leading this one.

To the dumbasses who stole the biners at the rap/TR anchor on 3/19/13.. Put them Back! It's not trad booty!

Comments: Ice Slot was huge this year! Very straight forward.

Your Mama was the fattest it's ever been too. Blue Lines rates Your Mama as a 4+... What?
