I don't think I've seen this route formed the way it was described in the "Ice Climber's Guide to Northern New England". They describe it as climbing a smear, stepping onto a free hanging curtain and finishing off by exiting right. They also graded it WI6.
I found more than a smear and nowhere near WI6 difficulty.

Climb a free hanging pillar if it comes in and go straight up! Finish in the trees.

The conditions I climbed it in were a bit different. I climbed a strangely formed pillar to a ceiling. I stepped left and latched onto a free hanging window pane which I climbed straight up and into the trees. There was no exiting right.


Somewhere in the middle of the hanging gardens. Immediately to the right of Without Reason
