Nice WI4/5 conditions until the top. Melting out. ...

Description 

I don't like describing routes I haven't led, but Ice Palace's exit was so melted out it was unleadable today (at least my me). This climb rarely comes in, so we set up a top rope (couldn't help ourselves). Thanks Randy Harris for your awesome BW5 (bushwhack) above Stone Free. She is a beautiful 115 foot pillar that gets 3-4 hours of sun a day making her exit even more dangerous than the usual dangerous Rifle exits. She had a cone that was so melted out today we would not even top rope through it (at least our crew). I'm truly hoping it comes in this season, I would really like to get a lead on her, as I'm sure a lot of other climbers would.

Location 

0.5 miles into park on left side. Right next door to Stone Free. 5 minute hike from car. Rappel the route.

Protection 

Screws, V-threads. Cords with rings around a dead stump for rappel.
