4,000 Miles of Heartache

Rating: WI4+
Length: 60 meters

In the 2003-04 season, this route consisted of a series of short steep pillars with good ice gear protection possible. Rest positions are possible on this route. This route will take all 60 meters of a rope and maybe more depending on your line and where you belay from. Therefore, one may need to find a possible belay before the end of the ice or take longer ropes.


Anchor: Bring anchor and v-thread material.
