5 out of 5 stars Best route in Haffner Creek, just Lead it!!!

Bouldery pump fest to clear the lower roof. Definitely stick clip the 2nd usable bolt, like everyone who climbs this route does. Even then it is possible to see ground fall. After the roof it's not so bad and there's a good rest in there, but it's a battle against the pump to gain the ice. On the onsight attempt my right tool sheared while mounting the ice and I took a 20 ft whipper, but got it clean on second attempt.

4 out of 5 stars Red Point

Figured it out on top rope, then returned to send it first go. I'd heard so many horror stories of near ground falls, that I think fear kept me on. I'm a bit of a pussy. If you need a stick clip for this route don't bother, the cruxes are low so might as well just top rope it.
