Kristie midway up Dizzy!!

Description 

This is a fine route. Clipping the 3rd bolt is a bit spicy but you are on good holds so stick with it. Depending on how the ice forms it can be a piece of cake or a sting in the tail at the top. This route is very pumpy for the grade and fairly tecnical at the mid section.


Protection 

10-12 quickdraws for bolts and fixed gear, and a few srews for the start and end. You will be cliping a fixed Specter on this route so be prepared. It is very fixed as is as "good" as specters get.


Toprope Protection 

Ice screws at top of route.

I believe Jeff Lowe put up the FA, but I could be mistaken.

According to legend this was an old Ice Fest comp route, yes put up by Jeff Lowe. It's a little of a spicey lead (2009) without draws hanging on it, as it would be easy to fall onto the slab below while you're heading up the arete.
