The climb goes up the left center side and then he...

Description 

Balls to the walls on this one. I scared Tom almost to death on the first 100ft pitch. Starts up a ranp for 30ft? and then traversed south into a v groove. Around the v groove area I slung a twig tree. That was my only protection. Nervy climb. After that your in the trees. Above the trees there is nice thick W.I.2-3 bulges above a large open deep snow ramp. We untied the rope and did ice bouldering on the bulges.

Location 

Left of Damnation Runnel. Same approach as Damnation Runnel.We had to do one half rope rappel I think.

Protection 

Protection is that twig tree. It may have grown some. The bulges at top would take screws readily but why bother.
