Description 

Ascend a snow and ice gully to a narrow chimney full of ice. Climb up the chimney using stemming moves when possible to a verglassed slab. One or two moves on the slab will land you onto a ledge. Easy snow and ice will get you to the top. Interesting but scary climb. In really fat conditions it would be easier to protect and climb but that only happens rarely.

Location 

From Chock it Up drop down to the base of a buttress. Follow the base of the cliff band past two gullies and a large tall rock wall that leads up into a very large gully. Move up and around a detached buttress to find the chimney behind.

Protection 

A rack of ice screws. Tree anchor on top.
