Route Summary | Ascent Notes (0)
This climb is the western most route on the Lower Bench. Approach as per all the bench climbs. After reaching the meadow, look up and to the right. Bozo's is the very obvious, very fat, very yellow flow. You will be looking at the second pitch. Hike across the meadow, trending right, to the trees. It helps if you find it in your sights before you enter the trees so you have a bit of an idea where to go. Drop into the drainage when you get there. Count on about an hour and a half for the approach. Continue up the drainage to the first pitch, a rolling channel of ice about 20 meters long. Belay from screws to the base of the meat pitch, a rope length long. Usually this pitch is very featured, but early season can be steep. Belay from screws. The third pitch is a ways up, and is shorter than the second, and usually bulge-y and interesting. Belay from srews, or a tree, if your ropes will reach. This climb builds and builds all season, and is usually pretty dry and brittle.
