Matt, read Roach's Thirteeners book. Two class 3 routes up Ice. Whoever told you Ice has harder rock didn't know what they were talking about. Maybe they said class 4 because of the steep snow potential but that does not increase the rock difficulty.
Matt, just curious, but from your peak list it doesn't appear that you've climbed Ice or N. Apostle either. Are you speaking from experience or just what you've read? I agree with Kansas. The suggestion of Ice as intro to Class 3 is a very bad idea.
Agree with Jon and Kansas. Ice Mountain has some moves on rock that I thought were harder than any on the Pyramid (which is rated Class 4). Of course, having slimy holds on moldy rock did not help. But what would I know...
