Shithouse Wall

The Shithouse Wall gets the most sun of anywhere in the park. This can sometimes adversely affect the ice conditions, but it can also provide for some added warmth and plastic ice. Please use the ladders to cross over the fence whenever possible. Use ice screws and trees for top belays. An extra rope, or long pieces of webbing will be helpful for setting up anchors. There is a walk down in between the Five Fingers Area and the Shithouse Wall.
