Description

200' of easy side stepping up NEI1 type snow/ice leads you to a vertical section of true ice 50'+. No need to rope up for the first part. Walk off climbers right and descend the steep hill.

Probably not the best place to climb after a big snow storm. It is, after all, a land slide.

Location

East side of the road (14), Williamstown. Its literally roadside. Walk off to the climbers right. If driving south you might miss it because its tucked away to the left, but driving north its obvious. Park on the roadside but make sure you're well off the road. Not the best place after a big snow storm.

Protection

Ice is shroomy. You can place gear, or you can top rope by being lowered in. Its a pain to set up a good overhanging tr anchor for toprope but it could be done.
