Scramble up 100' of steep snow to reach the base of the route. Climb up a wide smear of normally quality ice plastered against a smooth dark face of rock. Top out on a large ledge and move left to a large alder to build and anchor then rappel from this point.


This route is located on the east side of the river a couple rope hundred yards up stream of POS.


Ice screws, alders, possible V thread.
