Comments: This route is in and FAT! Best ice in the park right now, the 4 mile hike is completely worth it!

There is evidence that people have climbed it, and you can hook most of the way up, but it's still in great shape. The line to the left is WI4 the line on the right is WI3+.

Great blue ice, little brittle and bulletproof though due to how cold it was when we were up there.

Comments: Check the CO ice thread for pictures. Was out there yesterday and this flow was FAT. Great conditions for a first lead on ice.

Comments: Check the CO ice thread for pictures. Was just on the main flow yesterday, and it was "IN" but thin and felt like WI4+ at least. The upper portion of the falls is pretty chandeliered, thin, and hollow, so be careful.

1 trango alpine equalizer (brought 2 things to make anchors since I was leading all pitches)


Hope that helps....

Great climb, super fun, and absolutely beautiful views the whole way up. On another note, I didn't feel the exposure to much...some said the exposure was superurb, I felt it just kinda... more >>

Comments: As of today Martha was extremely unpredictable and wet....NOT FUN! We were in the shizz by about 7ish am and it was very wet with a lot of loose rock and ice melting and giving way.

Comments: I thought this climb was stellar!!! lot of bird poop but stellar nonetheless. I would advise bringing at least double #3 Friends and double #4 Friends if you have them, I found them useful for the fist crack section and just below the crux. I thought the crux was not too bad, but did it offwidth style, chicken winging and knee barring until I could get up to that sweet hand jam below the block. I couldn't for the life of me imagine laybacking that but whatever works. The Trango c... more >>
