Description 

Pitch 1. A steep step of ice climbs up into a low-angle gully that steepens and widens at top. Anchor webbing at a tree on the left side of the top, visible from the start of the climb.

Pitch 2. Climb to the tree that reveals the secret meaning of the climb.
(Didn't climb second pitch due to time, please add info in a comment, I'll add here)

Location 

Left-most climb in the McKirdy Lake area.
We hiked in by some power lines part of the way, bushwhacked last part.

Protection 

Screws. Bring as many as you think you'll need for a climb of this difficulty/length.
There may be trees to sling on the second pitch.
Two-rope rappel to get down pitch 1.
