Has had some good years forming, snd some bad ones where it never made it. Dubbed the 'Snake' during early 80's ascents.

It was in pretty good on 2/21/10. I lead it but the screws were crap in pretty wet ice. The top left was pretty hollow too. A large part of the left side had fallen off.

Over the lip provided some good ice for anchor screws.

You can back your TR setup up with the guard-rail of the road up top. Also a couple choice trees.
