DescriptionNamed after Tod Cozzens' series of Ice Fests in the early 90s, this route heads up a long pitch of steep ice. Either romp up the first two steps or traverse in from the right to begin on a steep pillar (or curtain in fatter conditions), catch your breath on a short lower-angled section, and then fire the next long, steep section. The finish eases back a bit until a final bulge. Belay off screws above the lip, ideally with a 70m rope.
The gully immediately looker's left of the route is used as a walk-off.
