|Alcove/Pic of the Vic area to the Upper Bridge
This is a fun route just downstream from the Trestle area in a alcove/chimney. It is a right-facing, left-leaning corner. Start in a slot off a log. Mix it up with stems and delicate ice placements of left wall. The crack is wide in spots.
Cams in the crack if it is dry, possibly spectres, ice screws in the ice above.
2 large trees with long runners to below the rock band and a 60m rope touches down. Go left/ upstream of tree near ice lip 40 feet down. Watch rope ends as this drops you right over a pool of water
This goes up the prominent prow just downstream from the Trestle area and Schoolroom.
Rippin' it up in good conditions!

This is a great lead for those looking to get into the mixed game. Good cams the whole time it is hard. Jim Donini says: It's steep but at least the ice is thin!
