Description

First pitch is a 6 meters face with thin ice in early season, then an easy thin slab to a tree belay (there's two), you can also avoid the first face by following a narrow ledge to the thin slab. the second pitch is very easy to an alpine snow section and then the second tree belay. The last pitch could be considered the crux (if you avoided the face at the bottom) with some thick WI3 ice. Climbing below a first party would be unwise since the route tends to funnel lots of debris.

Location

Approach past crystal ice tower and follow rock face until arriving at the Tahawas area containing many other routes.

Protection

Short screws on first pitch (maybe rock gear in early season) and any types on next two pitches.
