Description Suggest change

A route of a more moderate grade than most of the climbs in the area. It has a few ice steps punctuated by lower angle sections. You can keep the grade at WI3 and TR with a 60m rope if you stop at the bottom of the top steep section (often there is an established V-thread here for this exact reason).  Or keep going up the steeper ice (WI4) to the brush above.  The top out can be quite spicy in a thin year and the nearest reliable sized tree is quite the fight through 30 feet of brush.

Location Suggest change

Prominent flow on an arete/corner left of "More Banks Ice". This is just past the turnout for the toilets. Park on side of road (careful not to pull off too far and end up in deep snow) or park near toilets. 

Protection Suggest change

Screws, draws, something to build v-thread
