DescriptionThe climb begins with a low angle rubble filled off width. Follow this with easy hooks and some ice to a solid clear flow just below the large rock one third of the way up. Place a screw and/or cam here as the ice is usually marginal from here on up. The crux and best part of the route begins here. Stem and hook up slightly overhanging rock to a narrow ice runnel that forces a strange OW struggle. Follow this to another overhang above a small stance with some small gear. Work up parallel cracks and stem up tenuous placements to a dirty finish.
The rock at this particular location is smooth, and the ice slow to form, so there are few good mixed placements making this climb more challenging than it appears from the ground.The top section is also dirty.
