Description from Nate Adams:
Grade IV+, WI5 (+?)
Pitch 1: 25-30 feet, WI3+.
Pitch 2: 20-25 feet of vertical followed by 25ft ramp.
Pitch 3: WI5 (or harder?) 30 foot pitch that begins with a thin pillar (that gradually widens and becomes a nice vertical sheet) to a comfortable stance. Belay/rap from baby angle/knifeblade (that were placed in 1993!).
Pitch 4: WI5 to a large ledge with belay in ice. Long vertical section. I vaguely recall the vert being about 50 or 60 feet. 2 rope rap to base of pillar below (we used old school 150 foot ropes).
Pitch 5: Short ramp or short 90 degree curtain up the left fork of the gulley. Climb snow to belay.
Pitch 6: Starts with 15-20 feet of 85 to 90 degree ice, followed by a ramp to another steep section. There was a nice tree to rap from here (2 ropes).
Pitch 7: 70 feet of WI3 to tree (single rope rap from this tree).
