A good route, that has a little more character then its neighbor Waterhole. A short thin step is followed by either a thin pillar of a couple of body lengths or rock moves protected by a bolt. Then continue to a bolted anchor on low angled ice.
Located at the far West end of McGillivary Slabs. Park at a small pullout in the trees just before the guardrail starts when heading Eastbound on Hwy 1. At the south end of the parking area locate a trail heading into the trees. Follow the trail until it crosses a bigger trail, turn right here and continue for a short distance until it breaks off left. Head up hill until you reach Irish Mist.
