4 pitches. Seems often in condition with a nice icy first pitch and a choice of icy finishes. Easy angled in between. Good choice for a first III

andybuckley 6 Mar, 2010 AltLd UKC doesn't seem to have a route for the ice wall right of Doctor's Dilemma, accessed by breaking out left from WG before the first ice step. Old SWC book lists this as Junior's Jaunt, which seems to be wrong. Anyway, it provided a nice couple of pitches at II/III, and more interesting than WG itself... but nothing to get really excited about.
