Description [Edit]

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...

Location [Edit]

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

Protection [Edit]

Normal ice set-up...
