This is another nice pitch of moderate mixed climbing with a steep, little finish out a chimney with actual ice! We climbed in from a ledge on the left, doing the same first 10 feet of "Unknown?", but going directly up the chimney from down and right seemed better on closer inspection. It has nice, well-protected climbing. This seemed a bit "fresh" with loose rock, so I'm guessing it probably hadn't been climbed before. It is another nice choice for poor weather, or a nice warm-up for the Alberta Falls Wall.


This is located just right of "Unknown?" in a chimney and crack system. Look carefully for a bit of ice 50 feet right of "Unknown's" obvious ice blob. Rap easily off a tree.


Light rock rack to #4 C4.

Coming in from below rather than traversing in from the left is actually kind of chossy. It may or may not be better than the original start.
