The NE facing dihedral next to the arete with routes on either side. Nothing too tricky here, just some fun climbing with stemming, jams, and a few face holds. Note: Although it is a little damp in dry periods it is still not a big problem. I wouldn't recommend this during the spring or any other wet time.


Standard rack. Some medium to large pieces would be helpful.

This is a good short ice climb during the winter.

I found it best to start right side in at the bottom, and switch to left side in to top out.
