Loki in true form.

Description 

This is a spicy dirty black and white ice flow that has two obvious lines. The left side is harder and the climbing is actually good when it is in shape. The crux is in the first fifteen feet to easier climbing above. It is Dirty and fun.


Location 

This route is located about 75 yards to the east of Toxic Orb. It is also on The east side of Omega Bridge so be careful because the guards are a little touchy about the bridge. Otherwise you might be harassed and escorted back to your car.


Protection 

Ice screws and runners to tree, root, and boulder anchors at the top. Walk off climbers left.

This is really good right now and currently the crux is the spicy top out. Some #4 and #5 Camalots would be useful for an immediate belay off of the top, or do the regular slog up and left to a nice live tree that you can rappel off of. Don't forget to be stealthy on this one as the guards are touchy about the bridge. It is well worth the effort though.
