Almost as little route finding as its neighbor Repentance. Great moderate drytooling gains thin ice to a good belay ledge. Directly off the ledge, a short but excellent section of rock-gear-protected ice climbing gains the flow coming from the intimidating column, and another belay off to the right. The final pitch climbs the column into a seemingly endless system of chimneys to the woods. You can rappel after the first chimney ends, or go for the glory hike down.


Fifty feet right of Repentence on a steep open wall 50 yards right of the Cathedral cave.


The route protects fairly well. The spots to watch out for are the ice right after the mixed start which can be thin down low and of course the column which can be candled if not well formed.
