Grade Route

Starting on the trail before you get to the main ice flow, climb the chimney-like corner to a ledge, then torque up the thin crack to the anchor.

First bolted line at Haffner. M7 in lean years when the ice doesn't hang over the roof. Good holds lead up a blunt arête, then launch into the 45 degree overhang and ice.

FA: Sean Isaac, 1997

Climb up to crack below grassy/ice ledge. Flop over and continue up and right in corner to the ice. Rap off two bolts set back above the climb

FA: Jim Gudjonson & Sean Isaac, 2000

Climb the icy ramp to gain the wall. Straight up the rock and over the ice at the top. Rap off two bolts set back above the climb.

FA: Eric Dumerac & Guy Edwards, 1998

Up 5 bolts in the steep left facing corner to the ice up top.

2 Bolts protect the footless moves onto a series of freehanging pillars

Jam up the right side of the conspicuous flake, then step left onto the ice clipping a bolt along the way. 2# 3# cams in the flake or a massive sling on top.

From the top of the "flake" drytool the steep wall above through 6 bolts.

Start on frozen log. Most seasons the ice covers this route.

Seep and bouldery to a thin smear and big sledge. Continue up ice and rock to another ledge. V thread anchor or traverse right to the "Swank" bolted anchor. Recommended pre clipped 3.

Beefcake through the initial roof section off the ground then manage the pump through easier moves to the top. Double bolt anchor.
