Trip: FA: "Gray Falls" - Ingalls Creek


Date: 12/10/2009


Trip Report:

Today Mark Shipman and I partnered up and climbed a route we named "Gray Falls" (WI4) due to its close proximity to Gray Tower, above Ingalls Creek. We climbed the route in two roped pitches (each being a full 70 meters) and did a lot of solo climbing up rambling steps. The elevation gain from the base of the route to the top was 900 feet according to our watches.


The route: We soloed the first ice tier, then roped up on the 2nd, & third. From the top of the third we put the rope away and climbed up more easy stuff.

The the upper level, WI4:




Upper rambling stuff.




Approach Notes:

5 or 6 miles of Ingalls Creek Trail. Clearly Visable.

Here is another picture for size comparison of the first step and the overall route. I didn't post it at first because its so bad and sun washed.
