Description 

A great pillar (WI4) if it’s touching down (needs more than a week or two of cold temps). Otherwise, climb the overhung left-facing corner/roof to the right of the hanging dagger and pull onto the ice where the seam ends (M6). This is a great little trad mixed climb and it sews up well with a micro cam and finger-sized gear. At the top of the ice pillar, finish left up the corner/gully.

I don't live in CT and never have my bolt kit when visiting, but I would encourage someone to establish a bolted anchor about 8 feet above and right of the ice, finishing up the arete. The upper cliff above the arete, is way too sharp to belay/lower over, so the anchor has to be placed below the lip. One protection bolt should probably be placed too. There's a low cam but it's kind of runout finishing that way currently. There are good clipping holds. Grade's the same.
