|Stony Clove - West Side
Rap ring at the top of second pitch. Tree slung with rings at top of first pitch.
From the Stony Clove parking lot, hike back up the hill less than 1/4 mile to the historic marker about the forest fire. Turn left and scramble uphill toward the cliff band. The rock is usually loose on this scree slope. Use caution. Depending on what path you follow, you could end up at the base of the Entertainer or if you trend left, at the base of The Curtain, which is about 100 yards left of the area classic Little Black Dike.
There are two bolts for pro near the base of second pitch in the event the ice is thin. When I climbed it, I didn't see the bolts but there was plenty of ice for screws.

Rap anchor at top of P2 was completely encased in ice, and covered in snow, when we were there recently. Tried to not ding the rings too much as I chipped them out...
70 m rope gets you all the way to the P1 tree
