Description

Several small smears exist on the north side of the tunnel, up the hill. I've never climbed them, so I'm adding this ice description so people who have can add the routes.

Getting There

Park at the tunnel. Hike around the north side and traverse up the hill and you'll see at least three formations.

The main south-facing climb has filled in sufficiently. Deep snow landing if you left your rope behind. Rap anchor at a tree on top. Bring snow shoes for the approach, or plan to clawl for an obscene distance like we did.

The main north-facing climb looked fat from a distance. Mar 4, 2003
