DescriptionBegin on runnel with a tree frozen in it. Narrow with fun moves on solid pick holds. Hook tree and exit to next ice flow. Above that move far left on ledge (rock climbing trail) to reconnect to main flow. Move up this to a big belay ledge with trees. There are enough trees for anchors. On the 110 foot first pitch I only used trees. I could have only used screws. The second pitch goes over a bulge and then goes left with the ice becoming less and less until snow is taken to the top for a belay from the trees. Didn't seem like it but the rope was about 90 feet to the trees. I put in a screw and only brought one screw. I could have put in at least two more on easy ice. The route is separated by steep snow a lot with frozen dirt for tool placements sometimes. That's why its called boulder problems.
LocationGo straight up from the east end of the main cliff small parking lot, a very short distance. This climb is just right uphill from the main widest flow.
Walk off right or east to reach a stream and follow it down far right of it and then go down to the parking lot. Better to rappel if your unfamiliar with the area for descent or walk west towards Kennel Wall Trail.
