Description [Suggest Change]

Balls to the walls on this one. I scared Tom almost to death on the first 100ft pitch. Starts up a ranp for 30ft? and then traversed south into a v groove. Around the v groove area I slung a twig tree. That was my only protection. Nervy climb. After that your in the trees. Above the trees there is nice thick W.I.2-3 bulges above a large open deep snow ramp. We untied the rope and did ice bouldering on the bulges.

Location [Suggest Change]

Left of Damnation Runnel. Same approach as Damnation Runnel.We had to do one half rope rappel I think.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Protection is that twig tree. It may have grown some. The bulges at top would take screws readily but why bother.
