A great moderate climb with large ledges between pitches and beautiful rolling ice.
Pitch one was the hardest for us, but that was due to thin ice over the lip (a rather annoying and sometimes terrifying part of ice climbing in the Bitterroot).
Ramble On faces south and is at a low elevation. Cold weather and cloud cover is more than ideal.
Rappel the route via trees. 


Walk down the Bear Creek trail and go about 1/4 mile past the Wilderness boundary (there is a sign). Leave the trail and hike north, over the creek and up the side hill. Hit the cliff line and walk left (west), keeping an eye up for when you find it.  I wish there were better directions, but it's honestly just a little hard to find. This beta can be a little disheartening, but know that once you are beneath the climb, it is in fact obvious. Good luck!
