Kinsman notch
« on: March 18, 2006, 06:51:53 am »
3-16-06  We climbed a free standing pillar just left of the top of the Beast. We did the first pitch of the Ramp rt and then this pillar  is a direct finish to the ramp. I actualy made a belay at the top of the Beast right where it joins the ramp and climbed the pillar from there. (better pictures)  This pillar is not in the book? Is it possible that the waterflow changed this year with all the rain and that this climb is new???  It was pretty candled, steep and brittle. felt 4+ to easy 5ish????

another shot of the pillar. Top out was a thrash through thick annoying brush.

If By a miricle it was an FA  we would call it The Beasticle 4+ easy 5? Nick Goldsmith & Isa Oehry 3-16-06 I honestly don't know how to grade it? It was a bit harder than any of the 4+s that I have done this year but pretty short for a 5 On A warm day it would most likly be a bit easier.

Nice job Tradman! Boy, that's just one of the great things about ice climbing- you walk into a crag you've been to dozens of times and one day there is a new route sitting there. Gotta love it.

Is that a crack in the overhanging wall behind that pillar?

yes there is a crack in the wall behind the pillar It leads to a drool of ice about 10ft left of the pillar.
