Approach - Take the path to the waterfall and ascend the "descent gully/chimney" (some may wish a belay at the top of this, depending on conditions and level of experience). At the top of the chimney, head up and slightly right through the woods 5-10 minutes to some steep rock and Christmas gully.
P1 - The ice crux is the first 20 feet, although in less full conditions snow-on-rock might be encountered near the top. (The pitch could easily be split by belaying at the huge pine tree ledge.)
Descent - There is a rap station on a tree near the top, but it's rather cramped. We continued to the trees and then made two raps with a single 70m rope starting off a tree on climber's left [skier's right] and several feet down. Both raps had rope left over, so I'd think a single 60m should work.
