Nice 2 pitch farmed ice route from a better time on the far left side of Black Widow slab. Approach up gully. Can be arduous with a big dump. 1st pitch to a tree with rock gear to back up anchor. 2nd pitch has been all ice to M3. Walkoff left. Hard to see from the road. Stayed in season quite well.


Ice screws, stubbies can be useful, rock gear on second pitch.

Toprope Protection 

Long rope, slings for trees.
