Description Suggest change

This is uphill from Skylight. Previously, the info had been incorrect on this route.

Walk under the first chockstone, climb a short ice bulge, continue up low angled slopes to a screw belay at the base of the larger ice bulge. Climb the steep bulge (left), or simulclimb up (right) on snow under the big chockstone. Continue until the next moderate ice bulge (the gully narrows here), where you can establish a screw belay. Climb to the top of the ice, then make a short climb/traverse trending left (on crappy rock) to a snow ramp which leads to the top. There is loose rock here, and it will get funneled onto the belayer, so position the belay wisely.

Protection Suggest change

Ice screws can be useful where the ice is fat enough. Bring rock gear.
