From what I can decipher in the Gillett guidebook, this is the long, left-trending corner/ chimney that begins about 150 yards right of the Cables route. This forms a really nice ice hose in wet years. In 2014, it looked great in October and still climbed well by December. In the fall of 2011, the ice did not form nearly as well and we backed off this route that December.
This is 150 yards climber's right of the cables. It ascends the obvious, left-trending corner/ chimney.
A few screws and a light rack - the rock pro is sparse in this water polished groove.
