This route has been calling my name all winter, I thought I was gonna have to post it once I climbed it. Thanks for the job well done! I'll be signing the log soon.
Thanks, it was a quick throw up here. I'll flesh it out a little bit more; perhaps add higher resolution photos (I only had small versions made at the time). I was actually surprised it wasn't already up here by the time I climbed it.
Today (1 May 2008), looks like another pile of snow was dumped up there. I think if a freeze thaw cycle of a few days happens properly, the crux ice will fatten up quite nice. As it is, the mixed difficultly was very fun.
Martha is out - we climbed it on Saturday and it was super thin. The crux was too scary to touch so we opted to climb the face right of the black block near the crux. This was 5.6ish but loose and felt harder with crampons.
