Please refrain from blocking the road, yield to oncoming mining vehicle traffic, and be careful of rockfall and icefall. Please share the road to minimize future access issues with the road's multiple user groups.
P1 is easier than it looks and climbs the sometimes thin ice to the chockstone. Plug in a cam and layback left around it. Belay on a ledge to the right of the chockstone, out of the way of the ice-bombs that are about to come down.
P2 is usually harder than it looks and climbs the ice in the squeeze chimney to the tree at it's top. It's usually wet so bring belay gloves for the top unless it's really sunny.
Rap the route if there's nobody coming up behind you. There are slings around the tree at the top. Choppo's is a good alternate descent if The Skylight is occupied. If you don't have 2 ropes you can walk off by thrashing carefully to the left, over to Chockstone Gully.
