A nice adventure route that runs up the to the left of Frigid Air Buttress. To locate the route, look about midway up Frigid Air to the 5.9 handcrack to 5.8 OW pitch. Just to the left of this is an obvious left leaning crack. This is the second pitch of the route. For more info & a topo, please pm Vegastradguy

Great fun being part of a first ascent. Larry displayed no small amount of courage on this. The hand crack is top-notch, and the squeeze chimney is the definitive pitch. Spooky, almost too spooky. Spare tires will never make it through there.
