This is the first documented ice climb on the Haystack side of the gorge-an aesthetic route from afar and up close. The crux comes early as a vertical pitch climbs under an overhanging cedar to the left of a small buttress. Rest on a terrace below a curtain (or bulges to the left) that finish the climb.

There's a killer view of the Panther Den Wall across the way, perhaps one of the best vantage points of this wall in the gorge.


Bushwhack south about 500 feet from the Phelps Trail/Haystack intersection keeping left and above the central drainage. There are 3 free-standing pillars first described by guide Orson Schofield Phelps about 50 feet south of the ice flow.


Rock pro on the left below the cedar, but if it's fat only screws are needed.
