This aptly named route forms as two small, yellow, vertical pillars stacked on top of each other.

NOTE: It is very possible that the wide yellow curtain (if it touched down?) just left of the 2 stacked pillars in the picture is the original line. Gillett's description leads me to believe that there is only 1 pillar, not 2. Or perhaps "Yellow Tears" is the single pillar on the bottom left of the photo, and "Blue Moon" is the 2 stacked pillars *shrug*. Either way, these things look sick, so go climb them!!


This route is just right of "Stoneman" in the back of the Black Lake Cirque. Descend via V-threads if avi danger looks bad, or climb the upper pitch of "West Gully" and walk off to the West if you are feeling ambitious. Better yet, don't climb it when avi danger looks bad. Otherwise, walk off to the East.


Ice screws and big bah-gunga's.
