Description 

This is actually a collection of short flows on the Measles Walls; the lower (LMW) and upper (UMW). There are other flows in the vicinity, namely up and left of the LMW, but most of these are very short.
LMW:
1st flow is very short (15'), low-angle. There is an even shorter flow left of it.
2nd flow is about 20' high, WI3-, in the wet corner.
3rd flow is the thin ice that forms on the rock route Scared for Life, WI3 and always quite thin, about 25'.
UMW:
Left flow is short, <20' tall and easy WI2
Central flow is steeper, longer, and the most fun, tho early in season it is hollow and thin. WI3 25'
Right flow is similar to Central, but a bit shorter and easier. WI2+ 25'
Last flow is short and quite easy WI2 20'
TR'ing most of these lines is easy.

Location 

Walk the BAW path east from the trailhead road. There is a well-worn path diverging from about 150' west of the end of Sky High Road (REM: don't block driveways). A State Land sign is visible 45' in the woods where this path leaves the hiker's walk-in. The path winds a bit before hitting open woods and heading upslope to arrive at the eastern end of the Boulderwoods, then heads east. It turns up the mountain about five minutes from the Boulderwoods and heads up to the Measles Wall. The ice on these is obvious, Wedding Cake is out of sight below the Upper Measles Wall. It is best reached by going to the Upper Measles Wall and heading down, then east.

Protection 

Screws if anything. The short flows are generally soloed; Wedding Cake takes good pro.
