BETA PHOTO: Left flow, 3/1/4.


This is a good beginner lead/TR. There are good stances from which to place screws.

Sometimes, the rock above and right gets a curtain of ice that can make for an interesting finish.


Bring a few ice screws.

Toprope Protection 

There are trees above this route that can be used for TR. Bring some long slings.

I was informed from a CMS guide that the huge roof about 20' to the right of the small WI2+ flow was attempted by Kelly Cordes some years ago. It packs a punch and was only lead with small, small RPs and stoppers. Just an idea for some crazy dry tool freaks.

Climbed this route 12/1/07. Not nearly as much ice as shown in the picture. A #0.75 or a #1 C4 and 1 screw is all the gear you need. Short and really strange exit moves when there isn't ice, but it's worth a run.

Really short, but I thought the strange exit moves were fun.

When the curtain forms above this and to the right, like it was yesterday, 3/5/11, it makes for a fun, thin, WI4+ top out. Belay with slings from trees atop the rock wall.
