Description 

This is one of those "short but sweet" kind of routes. In early season it can be difficult (thin and steep) but later on it fattens up nicely.

Protection 

The route has a fixed knife-blade piton w/ lap link about half way up on climbers left.
This protection is available only in early season when there isn't a lot of ice.
As the season wears on, the ice gets considerably fatter and screws are the way to go.
At the top of the ice and to the right is a ring pin.
The crack and overlaps take small stoppers to 1 3/4" cams.
On top is a new 2 bolt anchor with chains.
ED.10/08

Toprope Protection 

2 bolts w/ chains. Installed 11-15-07.

Maybe it's me but I'm pretty sure you should stay off the f------ ice when it's 65. Sorry for the bitch session.

I actually feel the crux of this climb to be getting through the rock bulges at the top to the anchors. There is no gear to be found around here. Would anyone mind the placing of a piton to make this a lot safer?
