Description

Two pitches of grade three ice not really thick enough for ice screws but good belays lead to to snow ramp and trees. above ramp on left side is steeper ice wall(WI4+) 100ft that ends abruptly below summit. Move horizontally right from ice here via hand jamming crack (5-6) to pillar and ascend pillar (WI5) to summit trees.

The end has multiple options. The farthest left is a solid column of 4+/5-, the direct (described above) can be thin and there is a nest of tat, pitons, and fixed gear in the corner before the traverse into the column if you get sketched (although that anchor looks pretty sketchy as is), or you can head up a corner on the right (4+) that looks fun albeit obscured by some brush.

Location

Gully between furthest west amphitheater and head wall cliff to the east.

Protection

Medium to large hexes or cams, ice screws.
