Excellent climbs this season.
Just to the right of Dutch Treat is a left-facing dihedral. In good seasons the corner fills with ice, offering some interesting climbing. Ascend the pillars, all the while leaning on the dihedral when the ice is narrow. Clip the bolt on the right side, and then maneuver left, ascending the thin ice past two more bolts and a slinged birch tree, to a ledge (of sorts). Continue up the corner with several short pillars to the larger trees above and the slinged pine tree.
Off of Mile 38 road, a couple km from 17.
To the left of the road there is a cliff line and behind a rather large pond is winding trail to the climb.
There are some marked trees that lead to the base.
During the summer (I assume) there are some rock climbs for both sport and trad.
In the winter, trad for sure. There are some bolts that appear out of the ice.

It might be possible to use cams for protection in the winter. The slab to the right of the climb is big enough and might even make a good mixed climb.
