Classic AI3+/4 alpine ice route at the head of Odessa Gorge, northwest of Flattop Mountain - the center of the three couloirs. 900 feet of perfect gray alpine ice steepening from 50 to 70 degrees if you climb it in mid-summer. The last 40 feet can be hairy where the cornice breaks off and leaves vertical snow. It's doable in early winter before the cornice forms, too.
