Description

Ice slabs and curtains...the first few hundred yards have most of the steep stuff and some interesting caves and boulders line the sides of the gully.

Location

Park at the AT parking lot and head south past the outhouses, follow the snowmachine trail for a bit then head into the woods to find an old outhouse. The topo shows an old trail/cut going up alongside the stream which offers a good ski/snowboard descent option.

We climbed it in mid December and found it in poor condition: lots of wet slab and water pools, two feet of crusty snow over boulders and very little ice except in the backs of the caves. Lots of snow as we climbed higher eventually turned us back due to slow progress.

Protection

Ice.
