Description:

The far left climb. Described as "the epitome of a freestanding icicle" it has been known to occasionally form a curtain. 45m of vertical leads to a fixed anchor on the rock to the right. This is where many parties rap back down although up to four pitches of easy to moderate ice exists above (215m total).

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

2006 it formed as a curtain although we took a pillar just right of the curtain to where it joined the curtain. I split the 45m pitch into two. The first was extremely pumpy with dead vertical ice, hooking moves, some stemming to the rock face, and reasonable, though hard, screws. I made the belay in a cave that formed behind the curtain. The second pitch was maybe less steep but consisted of stepping on fist sized mushrooms that broke off a couple of times and poor screws. A real sphincter tightener pitch. If it was a W6, it was my first but I think it was more like W5 condition, no gimme though.
