An alt. finish to Cinema?
« on: March 15, 2005, 09:38:21 AM »

After topping out while soloing Cinema Gully I did some 3/3+ 50-60 foot route directly above.  Any word on this, it is not in any of the guide books (any of the volumes).  PROB done, but just curious.  I would call it WHATEVER, if it is new. ???

interesting... so this is not Cauliflower Gully which goes off & leftish? I haven't bee up there in a few weeks so maybe it is something that hasn't come in before. I'll have a look when I go up there to take the weekly pix on Thursday AM.

interesting...

I rode up there this AM & looked very carefully above Cinema with the binocs. (no way I was going to climb up there in the snow!) I couldn't see anything that looked like a 50-60' route.

As you hike up from the finish of Cinema (trending slightly right) there is (was?) a very short route that starts off steeply (and thinly) that heads straight up to the top of the buttress.  Quite short.... and quite insignificant.... I will leave it at that. :P

 Yeah me and a friend [John Bssulak] did that  back in the early ninetys. Sure it is one of those routes that is ussually not there or gets snow stuck to it.  Anyway when we did  it  ,it was right after a major thaw,melt out and refreaze. Think we saw it as a grade 3 ,sort of thin and spooky in spots and full of debris,dirt and some  spruce or fir needles stuck in the ice.  We thought about   posting that in for  Wilcoxs last guidebook as Wake Of The Flood but figured it wasn't  note worthy enough and figured it rarely formed, just a product of the sudden thaw and refreeze.

 Think it is  referred to in some other guys guide book for the  general North East. Forgot the name of the book but it covered both rock and ice.
