Climb 60 meters of easy ice and steep snow up a wandering gully to reach a bench below a nice steep wall of ice. Ascend the broad curtain to the trees.


Located about 35 meters downstream from the Blue Wall on the same side of Walton Glen Brook (south bank). Find a narrow band of ice leading up and right into a hidden gully.


A rack of screws. Tree anchor.
