Climb the thick narrow yellow strip of ice while it's there before the winter sun melts it away. High exposure sustained (WI3) with a few bulges (WI4). It looks like a giant hanging goober.
I haven't climbed it.


Western side of Owl's Head cliff. The flow forms usually early in the winter during a cold high pressure system after a wet snow and rain storm.


Protection is ice screws and dependent upon conditions and temperature whether the screws are adequate safety or not.
