BETA PHOTO: The Dagger, WI5+ A1
Climb the first section to a belay under the arch roof. Aid out six bolts to the curtain, then up the couloir. A bolt protects the exit moves, 2 bolt rappel
Even if this route is not in, it's obvious from the photo where it should be. Seriously, you can't mistake it for anything else.
Stubbies down low, draws for the bolts, short-medium screws for the top
1/08/09. DC bouldering at the base of the Dagger.

The bottom section is a fun bit of ice, good for end of the day or if you got skunked on other ice in the area (or got snail eye). Typically fairly thick (in zee middle) ice and around WI 3. Two bolt anchor to the right, above the ice. This anchor allows TRin' the thin stuff to the right as well, in case you're not dailed in, or, want another short burn. I always look at the condition of the Dagger as an indication of whether other stuff will be in further up in the box. Fun stuff.
