This is a small (100 feet) climb that forms up once in a while. The two times I've
been there I have only seen climbable ice on the uppermost twenty feet.
Erich Bochmann and I thought we'd take a chance and made the long drive from
Cheyenne to Lyons, Colorado. When we got there, we found a smattering
of ice on the lower slabs and the usual "fat" stuff on the upper twenty feet.
Since Erich has a penchant for dulling his tools on mixed routes, he lead
the initial slab. Since he took the risk of leading that, I relinquished
the last thirty feet to him.
We agreed that climbing this little bit was better than not climbing at all.
