The original ascent climbed the back rock wall to reach the pillar. In Mellor's ice guide, he theorized that if the pillar ever touched down, it would be the hardest ice climb in the Adirondacks.
P1 WI3: Start up a steep, 15'-tall wall, then run up a low-angle slab to belay on the left in some trees. Tuck well into the trees to avoid ice from the column above.
P2 WI5: Continue up the slab to the column, and climb this (crux) to the top.
To descend, rappel the route.
