Crystal Chandelier

Crag: Black River

Rating: WI4, 20m

Route Description
Crystal Chanderlier is the large, impressive route that is directly across the river from the main stairway that comes down to the river bottom. It usually forms as a difficult clump of semi-welded candles, making it harder than it looks to climb. Access to the climb is across the river, so these routes are usually done in January or later in the winter. BEWARE: The river is treacherous and fast-moving. Many climbers have taken an unwanted swim when the ice gave way.

First Ascent: unknown
