On the right side of the Amphitheater is a big overhang forming a cave that is often decorated with Huge threatening icicles just waiting to let loose when you think its safe to run underneath... On the left side of the cave is a much more tame line of ice skirting the left edge...

Climb the line of least resistance over a steep lower wall and a few other bulges to the woods... There is normally an anchor on the left that you could use to belay and or rap but i like to belay in the woods and hike off to the left and down the hill be Chia...


The left end of the big Widows Cave on the right side of the Amphiteater...


Normal ice set-up...
