Description 

The icefall derives its name from perhaps some resemblance to Dracula's winged cape. The climb is well visible from the road.

Moderate and one of the most popular climbs at Frankenstein. Almost always in. The easier left side goes at WI4+. The right side is slightly harder (WI5?) and is more dependent on conditions.

Get there early or get in line.


Location 

From the Standard Route walk about 150 yards along the tracks and locate the trail leading up towards the corner with Dracula.


Protection 

Ice screws. Slings with rap rings wrapped around trees (for both, the left and right sides). Left side has some fixed pro in the rock at 1/3 of its length.

To descend, either rap from the slings or walk off the cliff to the right (trail).
