After meeting two men at my campsite, I invited them to go ice climbing with me. I had climbing gear, a harness, rappel equipment, a rope but no screws. They accepted my offer. After leading the easiest flow on the left side, we traded off my gear and used the rope as the other harness. Our feet matched up close enough and everyone had a good time climbing it wearing my crampon climbing boots. Sustained start and grade three finish. I wouldn't venture into here when the snow is deep. Much more opportunities for ice climbing in the notch but I didn't see anymore ice there so early in the winter season. It's a ridiculously long hike but the scenery is awesome.
Before entering the notch this short crag is visibly uphill from the trail on the south side and is known as Lower Sunny Side. In the topo drawing it is the route on the left side and another route right of it was top roped.
Trees for rappelling the left sided flow.
