Description

This is a short but beautiful 50' tall x 50' wide blue piece of ice that is not visible from the road. It has many different lines up it and is a good place to start if you have never climbed in the area before and don't want to commit to the larger climbs yet.

Location

This route is located approximately a quarter of a mile to the north of High Tea. Cross the river as you would for High Tea, but instead of heading off to the far right, go slightly right and then head east up the hill for a few hundred yards an up onto a hidden shelf where Little America sits. It is the obvious blue wall of ice on top of the hidden shelf. Walk off climber's left to the east.

Protection

Ice screws and some runners. There are many trees at the top for good belays.
