There are four pitches (WI3-4) that vary from 30-50 feet. Pitch 1 is about 30', pitch 2 is about 40', pitch 3 is about 50' and pitch 4 is 30-40' (broken up by a large ledge). You can generally vary the difficulty of the climbing by which portion of the face you choose.
Hillyer, Viola, Wildcat and Buttermilk all face north, so are more likely to come in early and stay late (although Wildcat is the most narrow, so will open up most quickly as melting water degrades the ice).

FYI - The approach is NOT easy, it's an hour uphill, and approximately 1600ft of elevation gains. The last 200ft or so is a scramble over ice and snow. we used our microspikes the whole way up on January 8th - RJ
