Description 

This is a fun ice route, and a good beginner multipitch route, (big ledges and such). Climb the relatively short pillars and curtains, as well as some very short steps of steeper ice as you follow the climb towards a top out. You can walk back to the road from the top, or rap the route if you're headed further upstream.

Pitch 1: WI3. Pitch one climbs a short pillar ~35 or 40ft. This pitch can be steep and hooked out and dinner platey. Belay off a bolted anchor on climbers left.

Step 1: 5ft

Step 2: WI2, 20ft. Easily soloed,

Pitch 2: WI2/3, 100ft. A good pitch for a new leader, nice low angle flow that leads directly to the base of the 3rd pitch.

Pitch 3: WI3, 110ft. This pitch leads up through a fun little cave feature. Belay off of trees or the base of the next pitch/step.

Step 3/Pitch 4: WI2 this short pitch ~40ft leads to the last step.

Step 4: WI2. 15-20ft Leads to the top, belay off trees or screws.

A walk off exists to the climbers right.

Protection 

Ice screws. There is a bolted belay/rap station at the top of the first pitch, and fixed tat on trees set up for rapping the route. First rap from the top is out of the narrows on the climbers left. You can rap the route with a single 70m rope.

Pulled the rap anchor at the top of Pitch 3 as it was dangerously bad. Just set a V Thread. Will try to replace this weekend if a suitable spot can be found.

Great solo, or beginner climb, especially as an exit (walkoff the trail at top back to car) at the end of a day up canyon.
