Description

Wide wall of ice bulges that lead up to a overhang. Take ice ramp right and up to trees. A few choices to finish. The pillar immediately past the overhang left is the longest and is WI4 and is probably Jaws, left of this is an alternate route WI3-4. This area is always in with fat blue ice. Good for a first lead at this grade on right side. Its a beautiful area and climb.

Location

Its in the middle of this wall of ice climbs. The overhang, you can't miss it.

Protection

5-6 ice screws. Trees for rappel or walk north and down.
