At the top of the ice pitch

Description 

This 70m ice line starts with rambling WI3 and reaches a steeper section with a rightward traverse at WI4 to WI4+. From here, it eases up a bit and has some good stemming until making it over the lip.

There can be ice in the gully above. Follow it up and left, eventually getting onto steep snow, cutting across a ridge, and traversing into the top of the Cosley-Houston finish.

Location 

On the NW face of Colfax Peak, just up and climber's right of the Cosley-Houston

Protection 

Ice screws. Pickets can help in the snow above.
