Description 

This is an interesting moderate in the lower Ice Park area. Cavers may like this one. On one section, you may have to turn your shoulders to worm through or risk the clavicle injury of birthing through an ice canal. To access this, either rap in, TR from above, or scramble down the path on the other side of the canyon just below the metal viewing station. Beware of bathing your rope if you rap in or pull your ropes.

You can start this below or on top a 20 foot boulder. To tunnel through on the left side of the boulder, you can spelunk at WI2. To start on the right side of the boulder, you can up this to WI4 or so. Gain a saddle at the level of the top of the boulder with either start. From here, you wind your way right and then left to a nook below a hanging curtain of ice. Great rest here. Move up and right through a small ice tunnel along a ramp. You can finish to the left with a delicate high step up on to the hanging curtain (4+) or continue right to a small groove and finish left. It is a fun alternative to the moderates of the Scottish Gullies in the area.
