Description 

First 50 feet is a detached chandelier pillar, 90 to 95 degree ice for 75 feet with large, free hanging icicles that can make climbing even on top rope a bit dicey. Eases to 85 degrees last 40 feet. Plan on getting dirty at the top setting up rappel/top rope on anchor tree.


Location 

Can't miss it. 0.5 miles on left after road turns into dirt. 5 minute hike. You can park right below the climb.


Protection 

Screws. There were carabiners and cord/webbing fixed around a tree for decent as of this writing.

CONDITION REPORT 

As of 1/22, Stone Free is in. Harder by a good amount than Soul On Ice in its condition, which is no cake walk.
