Chispa is on the Edelweiss escarpment, just past Edelweiss on Hwy 366. I haven't seen the route described anywhere else so we're claiming it as a FDA (first documented ascent). The ice is visible from the highway but doesn't come in every year. > >Chispa means Spark in spanish. The ice is dead vertical and 45+ feet high. We rated it at 4+, not a 5 just because there are a couple of microledges on the way up.
