If you hit Lady Strange and continue up the slope to the base of the cliff, traverse under the cliff to the top of the next drainage east. Slide/hike down the slope about 150', to the west edge of the next lower cliff band, then continue traversing east underneath it to the base of the curtain.
On Valentine's Day, it consisted mostly of rind 3-15" thick, detached at the top, but leaning against the rock. The fragments of ice blowing out the back of my pick placements could be heard rattling down between the rock and the ice...
In the next drainage east of Lady Strange... if you continue on up the main trail you'll pass a large metal upside-down "J", (something to do with the water line). Continue 50' past it on the trail, then cross the creek and hike up the slope due S. The route is also visible to preview from just above the main trail on the N. side, a large open slope another 100' up the main trail. Hike up this north-side slope to a point you can see the ice, then glissade back down to the trail...
