Tyson Taylor dry schooling Hammer and Sickle.
Dry tooling up the face allows you to mount up on the dagger. This is a very moderate, well-protected introduction to mixed climbing and makes for a great first mixed lead.
Rappel/lower from ring anchors straight up the fall line from the dagger (about 15’ left of the pine tree) at about waist level on the rock band.
This route is on the same wall as White Russian, Black Russian, and Ivana Climbalot. Walk up the Left Fork, passing Get Whacked, Smear Campaign, and Fling. This is the last ice on your right before Frog Hop; look for it directly across the canyon from the Belly Flop Slab.
Three bolts, bring one or two short screws for the top. Two ring anchors for descent.
