Begin by climbing talus or snow depending on conditions to the first ice. Continue up several fun WI 1-2 ice steps including a nice steep pillar that is usually present at about mid-height (can be bypassed on easy rock to the right). Above the pillars climb 1-2 more steps of ice before the gully splits, take any of these options at similar difficulty to the Webster Cliff Trail.
To descend turn right (south) on the Webster Cliff Trail back to Rt. 302, then take either the road or the trail that parallels the Saco back to your car.
About 2500 feet bottom to top.
Prominent gully directly across the Saco from the parking lot at the Willey House site. South of Central Couloir. Cross the Saco at the bridge by the parking lot and head for the gully.
Light rack of screws if inclined.
