Description:

Although in the summer, it's only 5.7...in the winter, this is a nice WI4 to WI5 ice route, seldom done. Conditions vary radically from one week to the next, like all Sierra Winter ice climbs. Approach by starting 100 ft right of the area under eyore's chimney...go up 100ft, then traverse left to start of "real" climbing. The direct start has been done too...very sketchy.

Descent Options:

Walk back down around the east end of the Leap.

4 out of 5 stars Thin ice

With Geoff Phaneros. First pitch thin, Manky pro, hollow plate. Third pitch was 1/2 inch verglas on this trip. A short 3/4 angle was mandatory for pitch 1, after the hollow curtain.
