Use care at the top out of this one- I experienced poor detached ice and a smooth slab underneath that offered no good options for hooking. I have been told these conditions are pretty standard for this route.

Yup pretty typical, BITD there used to be a branch stuck down that you could throw a sling over to protect the last 15'. Always made for an exciting exit.

As of 2/28/12 there is a loop of cord hanging down from the tree belay that you can clip while on lead since there are no screw placements at the topout.
The first mini-pitch curtain of ACT can be climbed to access the Candlestick.

On 1/26/14 the cord/rope Garrett described was froze in place at top and bottom of it with approx. a 3' section of the middle of the cord/rope exposed.
