Description

Alpine like climbing with snow down low, to a short ramp of ice that leads you into the gully. More or less difficult variations exist with a couple of steeper steps to climbers left and low angle climbing to the right. Continue over low angle snow and ice to a vertical ice headwall. Pull the few moves going straight up then over a small band of rock or continue traversing left on a series of grassy, muddy, and some what icy ledges to the top of "Main Flow" 

Location

Approximately 50 feet to climbers right of Main Flow. 

Protection

Ice Screws, Ice Piton, Slings for trees
