Description

One of the gems in the canyon. Beautiful blue ice.
Pitch 1 - A steep start but eases off after a 15 meters. Find a suitable place to build a screw anchor before the next steep section and belay.
Pitch 2/3 - Can be combined as the climbing is not terribly difficult. Ascend a series of steep walls to the trees. Several options for topping out. Easier to finish left.

Location

Directly below the Eye of The Needle. Left of Giza's Way Out.

Protection

A dozen screws would be nice if you want to do it in two pitches.
