Itinerary:
Let's go romp around on some easy ice! This is a WI2/ish multi pitch and is a great line for someone's first multi pitch, or for mock-leads, or for beginner ice climbers! You need to know how to belay and have all the gear for a multi pitch- if you aren't sure what that is, email us and ask! In return, we will provide BOUNDLESS ENTHUSIASM and encouragement! It is ok if you haven't multi-pitched before, we can help you learn. The initial plan is to have one team, however there is often enough ice for two teams if they climb parallel to each other to avoid dropping ice. If you are interested in leading a second team, please let us know. Typically this is a walk off but it is important you have equipment to rappell if required.
Required Items to Bring:
All of your own ice climbing gear- crampons, axes, helmet, harness, boots, coats, gloves etc. A locking biner for securing yourself to the anchor, a belay device that you can rappel with, prussic, a puffy for belay

Recommended Items to Bring:
a small pack to carry things up the climb, cord for rescue (if you are familiar with rock rescue) cord for v threads. Extra gloves.
