These are highest ice flows on the ridge near the summit plateau. Most of the ice lies on a large flat wooded bench 35' above the gully. Climb Triple Play or walk around either side to get up to the best ice flows.

Getting There 

Reach these by continuing up from the Riverside ice, following the gully that diverges from the river; or by following any ravine up to the summit plateau, then cutting down the westernmost ravine with a ridgetop predominantly of red pines (do not descend the mountain's west flank).
