Description:

Classic ice climb. Pretty straightforward. Only problems are the avy danger above and the bolted anchors. The climb didn't need any bolts, and, whomever put them there put them in a terrible spot. You are right under the fall line the whole time. Go to the side and make your own anchor out of the firing range.

3 out of 5 stars Not Classic

This isn't as classic as I thought it would be. Spindrift is constant, it's not super easy to find non-hanging belays out of the way of ice. Climbing is fun though.
