The standard route starts in the middle and follows up the middle of the flow on good seasons. If you get the chance don't pass this fun flow up. The pillar beginning is really fun.

This was a result of a late wet season with lots of snow and lots of sunshine. Living at Sylvan I literally watched this thing grow until I thought it might be climb able. On the climb I broke the first 10 feet yikes! It grew back 2-3 days later. Usually appears mid winter- spring. There are multi pitch ice mixed climbs up by Sylvan. I have seen them!! Good luck!
