Description 

The first ice route of the right side. The ice flow is fat and climbs up three tiers. The first to tiers are short but steep. The final headwall is longer and just as steep. The route tops out at the large trees above.

There is a good crack for drytooling on the second tier to the right of the ice. It takes good gear and was the line of the first known ascent. Small nuts or cams needed. Recommended

As of 2-9-14 this is very fat. There are two flows for this climb the left on goes at WI4 and the right goes at WI3 both are fantastic.
