Description 

This is another roadside flow. It usually forms up with the other flows in the canyon but never appeared in 2000/2001 for some unknown reason. The climb usually consists of a single pitch of vertical-near vertical ice approx 30 ft in length.

Addendum: there are ~6 small steps above P1, probably each less than 15' tall, above of up to WI3- ice.

Protection 

Screws.

Toprope Protection 

Bring one rope with slings and biners.

Descent 

Rap from trees to the left of the route or a set of bolts with chains ~90' up.

CONDITION REPORT 
First flow was in fat condition today and made a nice solo. It goes on for quite ways back after the initial steep bit, following up ramps and ledges. Descent can be made by walking down to climber's left.
