Ascend 50 feet of easier ice, thin in spots from the river bottom to base of the double pillars. This can form a shell of ice above the good ice below. Good stomping on the rappel can reduce the quantity of ice hammering your belayer if he/she lies below. Get a great rest here. Stem up about 30 feet up a pair of ice pillars that ease your calf work considerably. Note, the ice can cleave off in large chunks on this section due to the solar effect on the ice. I took a chunk to the face on this bit.
