Just west of The Shroud is another gully. This is Tony's Nightmare. Ever wonder who was Tony? Why did he have a nightmare?

If you belay it, there could be a pitch of easier ice lower. Maybe 30-60 feet? Maybe WI 2 to 2+.

The main attraction here is a good pitch of WI3-4 ice above for 50-80 feet. This is really fun but can be wet. In good conditions, it might make a good first WI4 lead. In really fat conditions, it might be WI3.

There is more ice above, but it looks fairly low angle. According to Rob Griz, it is WI2- and 100', and trees with old tat and rings abound to rap from.

Beware of avalanche conditions. Expect an aerobic approach.
