Description Suggest change

Pitch 1: Grad 3 ice. There was a bulge for a crux move. Then what seemed like 1,000 feet of 60-80 degree snow.

Protection Suggest change

Small ice rack. Snow gear.

Location Suggest change

The right-most gully in the Ravine, just to the right of Damnation.  The P1 ice bulge should be easily seen once you move right enough of the fan. ( added after the comments below R Hall, Admin.)

Descent- Many will rap off fixed pins and/or rock horns a pitch or so up.  Climbing all the way up to the crest of the ravine is a long way! Longer than reaching the Alpine Garden via Damnation because you’ll be topping out near Nelson’s Crag.
