Agawa Canyon Area

... Even his Dog Hated Him!

Crag: Agawa Canyon

Rating: WI4, 30m

Route Description
On west side of the canyon, it is the next piece of ice north from the Trestle climb. It is blue piece of ice at the top of the canyon, approx. 30m tall (WI 3-4). Approach is 100m snow slog up from the tracks to some small ice at which point the approach becomes steep enough to rope up. The remaining approach (approx. 50m's) to the base of the ice is a steep alpine style ascent with intermittent ice. Tommy Lopresto lead the alpine ascent, seconded by Adam Gach and Johnny Seelman. Johnny Seelman lead the WI 3-4 ice climb at the top of the canyon, seconded by Tommy Lopresto and Adam Gach.

First Ascent: Tommy Lopresto, Johnny Seelman, Adam Gach, March 5 2006
