Description 

Guide to New England ice climbing has described a different route. Its was named Tom's Donut. I don't know anything about this climb. The 1986 guide has the route and description in it I believe. I don't recall the name, maybe its Tom's Donut.
Climb the curtain for 20ft crux and continue grade WI3 bulges to trees. The ice continues at WI2 and WI1 for hundreds of feet more with trees and escape anytime after first serious pitch.


Location 

Take the tracks passed Mt. Willard to go high up on Mt. Tom left side of snowfield slopes until on the left in the woods the curtain of ice is seen. Its a radical deep post hole snow approach in snow drifted sections and long distance to it. Never used snow shoes.


Protection 

Ice screws and tree slings
