Description 

climb up thin iced up corner to split in ice flow by rock bulge. Climb left side of split (crux) and move left to crusted over ramp and good gear cracks. After ramp move back onto flow and continue up and right until past horizontal vaulted over Birch tree. Belay at tree. It's a (WI4) but its a scrape your way up it climb because of much hollow and thin ice. Climb is committing and technically challenging.


Location 

Furthest west climb on the crag.


Protection 

Trad gear, mainly stoppers and not much of it at that also.
