Route climbed 1/27/08. P1: Climb short ice gully 4+ then scramble up and left. P2: Move up easy mixed ground, then traverse right to base of final ice. P3: Climb short ice hose, mixed traverse right (M6 & A0) to thin detached ice 5+, then easier mixed chimney to top.(Difficulties are due to current lack of ice. Previous ascents??)


Marshfield Ledge, left side of central prow. Descend in two rappels. The final ice pitch is about 150' left of the overhanging sport climbing wall, and 50 ft right of the Proud and Free crack.


Basic small rack of cams and nuts. 8-10 screws featuring shorties.
