Description 

This is another pleasant, steep, pillar just below the area of the Scottish Gullies downstream from the lower bridge in the Ouray Ice Park. It is in a section of short climbs, perhaps 4 pillars here. Perhaps neglected (in my experience) but nonetheless another fun quickie if most of the close to the bridge routes are occupied.

Find this by dropping downstream from the Scottish gullies (By Gully, Ach Mon) perhaps another 140 ft (across a small meadow) to the 2nd to last climb before the 5 fingers area. There is a bit of exposed rock with 2 bolts close enough for anchors.

You may find a lower angle bit of ice before this 30 ft overhanging pillar/curtain. Climb the pillar which can be past vertical but a hookfest to the top. Can be easier than it looks. A blast.

Protection 

A few screws or slings to thread ice.

Toprope Protection 

There are 2 bolts above & downstream a short bit.
