Great pics,,deja vu Zack ! Back in about 85 in late March meltdown, we started lead on backside and got to about same spot, then chopped a hole to the front(long rectangle space in pic), then came out front, face to face into the flowing water pouring down the falls, pounded in a quick fat Snarg, then a few feet more and a solid screw, and up the finish. Was one of the most fun leads I ever did at SRSP under wicked conditions...and we didn't have classy nice tools back then either!!! Looks like you made the most of a great day,,,post up any other great pics of the climb!

through the 'window' and lead out in waterfall to the top.

You sure that's Wildcat? Looks like the 'Snake' over in Tonti from the formation,,don't see the ledges to the right that make up Wildcat. Snake'(or Fang as noob's call it) is waay more wicked a climb.

You're probably correct- the two formations (the ones Bill and Steve were on) were right across from each other.

I have an excellent opportunity for ice climbers. I am a reporter with channel 8 in the Quad Cities. So you know this is legit, here is the link to my page: wqad.com/author/wqadshanesimmons/ ... We want to go to Starved Rock State park and film, interview ice climbers this Friday March 7 before the ice melts. PLEASE GIVE ME A CALL at 765-437-4554. This is going to be a great story... We just need some climbers!

This one looks like the main falls, (right side of canyon) in Tonti. That's the Mongoose'. The left side falls, which often dont' form all the way, is the Snake', or some call the Fang. To clarify for all those who get confused, the Snake and the Mongoose were nicknames for famous drag race drivers of the 70's. The names got labeled to the climbs on the first known climbs of those formations, back in about 80- 81'.
Both pics look like the main ice falls,'Mongoose', due to the amount of overhanging rock attached to top of ice, and a 'backside' to start up and move around to finish. The Snake is pretty much free standing, with very little rock attached at the top, unless a wide curtain forms across it. The base of it is usually a big tall cauliflower pile for like 30 ft, then 50plus of the very vertical and often scary thin connection to the top. I've not been down there yet this winter to see the Tonti ice. Are BOTH of them formed, or did you climb only on the main falls at back, right side of canyon? The left one, the Snake, forms from a highway runoff stream and often is only hanging down 15 ft with no formation. How's it look there, one or both formed this week?

Yup, that's the Snake, to the left in Tonti Canyon. I've got very similar pics from winter 84, and probably could almost come up with the date or week from my extensive ice records of every climb and every outing I've taken there for over 35 years. Looks like a formation from that winter for sure.
