Comments: There was so much ice this season that the curtains were more like an enormous blob of ice.

Comments: If this is the route I believe it is, the bolts seemed quite distant.

After completing it, I'm glad I did it, but while doing it definitely made me ask why...

Comments: It might be possible to use cams for protection in the winter. The slab to the right of the climb is big enough and might even make a good mixed climb.

Comments: Great crack to climb.

Easily able to set up top rope. Just find your way to the big roof and follow the narrow path along the fence. Not 20 feet away should be the anchors, hanging about a foot down the edge of the cliff.

Comments: Great climb!

There are anchors at the top, easily accessible for setting up top rope.

Comments: That is ridiculous!

I'd hate to reach the top to find even one of these to rap off of!

Comments: Instead of going right at the tree, you can make it up to about the second flake just going straight up from the tree.

Probably turns the route to 5.10~, but still fun to follow flake.

Not bad at all. Even fun for cool down.

Comments: It seemed to be one of the strangest hand jams I've encountered.

It felt like you hand jam one way, then you get footholds another way. Felt screwy.

Good climb anyways. Not bad for setting up top rope either, just reach over the edge. Done.

Comments: Good fun route to start off the day.

Belaying area is rather funky being that it is on a slope.

Comments: Great climb.

Hike in isn't ridiculously long, nor is the access to top-rope. Just rather hilly.

Access point involves a little climb over and through the woods.
