Description 

This is another fine moderate climb that my be an iced in chimney, a wet rock climb, or a little bit of both. The pro could be minimal which makes this a "heady" climb and not as physically technical. Although the technical crux resides about midway up, this can some times be rotten at the bottom also making it cruxy. A tricky warm up. This climb offers good access to the upper tiers.

Location 

This route is the obvious choked up thin gully about 40 feet left of Bigcicle. Walk down climbers left or locate the Bigcicle 2 bolted chain anchors a ways off to the climbers right.

Protection 

Ice screws, stoppers and small cams with some trad runners. There are questionable natural belay anchors at the top.

In 2010, with the permission of the FAer (Jack Hunt), I put in a bolted belay anchor on the right hand rock wall. Eliminates the dubious, tat-slung shrubbery.
