One of the testpieces of Chapel Pond; steep, sustained, and rare.
In the center of the face, climb an ice hose to a shallow cave 30' up. There's good rock gear here, and in the horizontals left of the cave. Traverse left 6' (or more depending on where the ice forms that year), then go straight up to the top.
Rappel from trees at the top.
The start is shared with several routes: Bubba (which goes straight up from the cave) and Buford (which traverses right from the cave, then goes up).
The route is located on the sheer wall left of Hot Shot. Several routes share a common start -- the ice hose that leads to a shallow cave 30' up.
Rock gear to 1" at the cave and traverse; otherwise ice screws (stubbies).
