A little lead climbing on the upper wall, north of the Amphitheater. Very solid, WI 3+ to 4+, depending on the specific line and ice conditions. Generally you can get in all the screws you need, but place them in hollows and mind delamination in the sun or above 32F.

All sewn up. Just practice, you know. For me, shooting in screws on steep ice without getting my gloves tangled in the leashes is the crux. The climbing is easy. Don't get me started on leashless climbing; I guess I'm just old school. But maybe I can learn.

 Oh yeah.... I was supposed to clean that!


Don't forget your helmet; stuff falls down.
