Description 

great route! thin ice on the bottom of the route.
ran the pitch till we ran into a v-thread. assuming this is where most people stop with a 60 meter line. the route is deceiving in that you can't see the top. with 70 meters it can be done in 2 pitches.when you get to the top look for trees slung to rap off of.


Location 

this route sits a couple routes left of glass menagerie.


Protection 

lots of screws. we took 14 on the climb(3 for an anchor) screamers.13cms up to 21cm.
