DescriptionI'm sure this has been climbed before but couldn't find any info. Didn't know the name, now I've been informed it is as above. If you're curious.
This is that 4-tiered ice flow just off the exit on the north side of the road. It's a bit of an approach.
P1. The 1st flow is barely anything.
P2. The 2nd is a 25-30 foot steep bit of thinnish of ice. It can be WI 4+ on its left.
P3. The 3rd bit is WI 3-. It is short.
P4. The 4th bit has a few options including a 40 foot elephant hose like pillar.
Pick a cloudy day. Descend the hillside.
