Glass Menagerie
Directions:  The climb between Twenty Below Zero on the left and Extensive Homology on the right. The first pitch is often thin and unbonded. The upper pillars are the real meat of the climb.

Gear: standard ice rack
Descent: rappel from the trees to a stance, place a v-thread and continue to the ground or walk off right around the Tablets and down
History:  February 18,1977 - Tim Rouner, Chip Lee
