Description 

The pictures and this description are valid for Nov. 10, 2009. Note at the time of ascent the climbing was no harder than WI3+ M4. Once the ice gets fatter this has potential to be a really cool climb with great views.

Rack: Rock pro and screws.

P1: Follow the low angle slab to the ledge belay from a the fixed webbing on a tree 20 feet up and right.

P2: From the tree move left and climb up to the next shelf. Belay from a tree with fixed webbing about 10 feet up and right.

P3: Slog through the snow for about 70 feet to the base of the third pitch. Climb the third pitch and either find a tree or v-thread to rappel to the belays to reach the bottom.

Note: Double 60m ropes are required for the rappel beta.

If anybody has more information on this route including the name or FA info be sure to post!


Location 

Approach:
Drive 1.3 miles past the seasonal closure to a pullout on the left side of the road. From here, look directly left and see the ice. Cross the stream and hike up the gully to the base.


Protection 

Bring a good set of screws with stubbys and some small rock pro (wires and TCUs).
