Description 

Named after Tod Cozzens' series of Ice Fests in the early 90s, this route heads up a long pitch of steep ice. Either romp up the first two steps or traverse in from the right to begin on a steep pillar (or curtain in fatter conditions), catch your breath on a short lower-angled section, and then fire the next long, steep section. The finish eases back a bit until a final bulge. Belay off screws above the lip, ideally with a 70m rope.

The gully immediately looker's left of the route is used as a walk-off.

Location 

From the Flying H, head toward this unmistakeable, long pitch with a large cave in the rock most of the way up, immediately to the left of the ice. Stay on the ridge to the left of the drainage until close to the route.
