Description Suggest change

This large ice slab is located on the upper corner of Mt. Willard between the South and East faces. It is most directly accessed by climbing Lower Hitchcock Gully and traversing left about 40 yards. It can also be accessed by traversing right from the top of Cinema Gully.

Location Suggest change

Immediately to the left of the very distinctive gash of Upper Hitchcock Gully.

Protection Suggest change

Ice screws. There are usually rappel anchors on trees at the top, but a few feet of "disposable" 7mm cord is not a bad idea, especially if you are looking to rap back to the ledge with a single 70m or 60m.
