Description Suggest change

A nice route with perhaps a couple variations for getting to the top depending how well the ice is coming in. Cruise some bumps and short steep sections to a ledge system, then take your pick of lines to the top. Watch out for sun affected ice higher on the route. 

Location Suggest change

Find this route just right (south) and up the hill from Less Than Zero Gully. The top can be seen from the road when you are in the Comet's Tail area.

Protection Suggest change

This isn't the Ice Palace or Cascade, you might be the first person to top out on this route for the season. Bring some extra webbing and choose wisely among the smallerish trees on top. (There is a very large white pine to climber's right- bring 5+ feet of webbing if you want to use it... though it may require rappelling past some scary death daggers!)
