This is the farthest left of the three little routes on the right side of Chouinard Falls commonly known as the "Three Stooges". It's commonly top roped from the the scrawny tree 70 feet up. It comes in mid-to-late season and the top doesn't always form. The ice can be a bit thin in places, so it can be a tricky lead for the grade.
Climb 30 to 40 feet of ice to a lower angled area of snow. Up this past a tree (of dubious integrity) and climb steepening ice to a unique left leaning ramp. Just before the top of the cliff band traverse right around a short headwall and make a few scrambly moves to finish.
Start just right of the Tree Route. If you go to the top, walk off right.
Ice screws. A few shorter ones might come in handy.
