Looking for a sick curtain that almost touches the ground? Here ya go. I did not climb this, but noticed it was not in the database, and I snapped a sweet pic of it, so, what the hell? Here it is. It's a good long hike to get up there. It's probably a mixed start. Go climb it if you're burly.

NOTE: Is this also called "Candlestick" by chance?


This is left of "Round the Corner"?? Feel free to help me here.


Rock gear & ice screws?? Dunno. Didn't climb it.

I didn't see any bolts on the left side of the ice dagger, perhaps it was covered in ice. There were NO crampon marks either, only a super shitty Lost Arrow piton about 20ft up. I led some M3 WI4 to the right to reach the tree anchor and on TR found this climb to be more like M7-8. Fun area to climb at.

This route was put up by Bill Bradshaw (I am pretty sure). It is called "Fish Out of Water". I think I may have done the second ascent with Rod Willard on 11-06-1999. There are 2 bolts placed within loose gneiss rock (M6) on left. From there, a long-long right reach over to curtain/pillar gains the ice (WI4) and with a couple of screws to the top. Slings on smaller tree for rap.
