Comments: FA by Jon Robb in 2002. I Had found the line, cleaned it up and Bugman bolted it for me. I was working it when Jon asked if he could complete it. I gave him the okay and he sent it. I was working at AMR Ambulance at the time so that's why he named "Ambulance Driver"

Comments: It's been a while since I've been to Eleven Mile Dome. What's the new route (5.8ish) between Face Value and Cheryl's Peril?

Comments: I've noticed the piton(s) are now gone from the lower portion of the route. a #0 TCU fits in one of the scars as does a black or blue Alien.

Comments: "The wall is created with a mixture of chip ice and water, manually slapped onto the supporting structure over many cold hours of intensely hard work. The refrigeration unit regulates the temperature and the airflow in the chamber, this keeps the chamber comfortable enough for climbing while still cold enough to retain the tonnes of ice stuck to the wall."

does that really work?? seems like it would come apart once you start swinging

Comments: If you do get on this, beware of the wasp nest that is just below the 1st bolt in a horizontal finger slot. My partner got stung about 5 times before he was able to clip in and then jump away!

Comments: Would it be too much to say this is one of the best routes in RRC?? I personally loved it. Although I did it on TR, I'll be back soon for the lead. THIN fingers start to big ole underclings. SWEET rest before finishing move to anchors.

Comments: The third piton is to the right. It seems MUCH harder than a 5.6 to go in that direction, so I believe the route follows up the dihedral left. The view is amazing from the top. Gear placements are available for those not comfortable with the runouts.

Comments: Some screws put in on the way down will definitely keep down the pucker facter of a HUGE swing down low if you fall. Fun route regardless. Crossing the slab was the highlight, under the peering eyes of the crowd at the Ice Festival.
