The Cave Route from a distance
Follow the gully to the right all the way, and you will find the cool unique ice of The Cave Route....
Starting out on a steep grade 3 bulge, you will gain a rest ledge and step right to easier ice.... This section is where the route gets its name, as you climb you will have rock at your back, the fatter the ice the tighter the space you are climbing in.... At the top, you step back left and tackle one more steep bulge.... There is a tree at the top with rap rings....
A very fun climb.... I'd call it a must do....
Far right climb in the gully...Hard to miss....
Ice screws, or, if you prefer, bring some rock gear. There are opportunities for rock protection in many places on the route....
