Belay just left of the Dagger.

P1- Diagonal right, up mixed rock and ice to a leftward slanting ramp. Ascend this (mostly ice) to a screw belay on the thicker ice above.
P2- Climb the rolling ice to a belay at a small tree in a gully. The climb continues from here, but the ice and snow are very low angle.

Descend by making a 60m rappel off of a small, questionable tree to the west.


This is the hanging dagger dripping off of the Quartzite high above the Scruffy Band. To get there, climb the Scruffy Band. Slog up and left a bit to the base of the climb (30-45 minutes). The ice climb I'm describing does not actually climb the dagger.


Screws, extra runners and a small selection of rock gear.
