This is an unlisted route in either Vince Anderson's Ouray Ice Park Guide or Jack Roberts' Colorado Ice Vol. 1 guide. Whacking a bit of ice in the Fingers area, you look down stream below Lat Ventana/Aqua Velva and you spy a mixed chimney with a benign appearance just left of a prow. Sort of sickly, Front Range dribble appearance. This is it.

You have to cross the fence to find the top of the climb at the base of a large tree.

Drop down. Get into a moderately snug chimney with an overhanging-ish line, be gentle on what little ice is here, thrutch upwards, into a pod. Find easier but thin ice bits, pass an embedded I-bar, to the snow ramp finish, to the fence.


Best to TR off trees but could be lead with a Big Bro, a hand-sized cam, a stubby, & possible more.
