Littlest Hobo 5.7 W6

Eamonn here, myself and Greg Thaczuk were in Field a couple of days ago and did a pretty cool little route.  It was done a couple of years ago as an aid line by Allan Massin. First they climbed thin ice in a corner with rock gear as pro. Then they aided up a roof to reach the ice which ends under an overhang they rapped from here.  We found thicker but still interesting ice on first pitch.  The second pitch had an overhanging pillar of brittle ice until bellow the large overhang were the ice was very thin and crappy, so did an airy 5.7 rock traverse left to a short smear and the top.  One 60m rappel from the tree reaches the ground.  Allan's route he called A2 W4, Lone Pine.  If you think ours is a different route, we'd like to call it Littlest Hobo 5.7 W6, ice screws are all that's needed, because the rock traverse is pretty short.  Oh ya, to get there its easily visible up above the road in the trees left of Silk Tassel a couple hundred metres.  You hike up to below a cliff, then traverse up and right,  an annoying grovel, but the climbings worth it.

    Also did one of Daves routes yesterday, Stairway to Heaven, which was in good shape and really fun.

Talk to ya later.
