Description 

Work your way up a wide, well-defined gully on moderate, tiered ice. Trending left seems to have more reliably thick ice but is steeper. Staying right is easier, but often thinner.

This climb makes a decent alternative if there's a circus on Standard Route.

Location 

Roughly 100 yards left of Standard Route. Easily visible from the train tracks. You can't miss it.

Protection 

Screws. Good-sized trees to belay from at the top.

Careful on this one. For us the ice at the crux was more difficult than it appeared from below.
