DescriptionThis is the rightmost of the routes above the pond, and is approached by the drainage to the right of the Arm & Hammer drainage.
This route comes in early, gets very fat, and is usually reliable into April. Most opt to climb just the pillar on the extreme left and rap from the trees , the climb can be extended to about 200 ft but the climbing above the pillar is easier and may involve some snow trudging across 2 ledges.
