The ice in December 2013. Well developed W14 and ...

Description 

This is the thin, obvious column to the left of the north-facing curtain. Though it's a pretty aesthetic looking line, the ice can be brittle and hard to protect. The ice starts out steep and towards the top the angle decreases. It is pretty pumpy, fun, and worth hiking 10 minutes for.

There is some drytooling to the left of this climb as well that ascends the steep wall on somewhat good holds, M6-8.

Location 

This is at the North Face Moffat Tunnel ice climbing area, about 25 yards to the left of the WI3 curtain.

Protection 

Screws 16, 19, 22cm. Use a tree at top for an anchor.

This route never really touched down in the 2014/2015 season, at least not like the existing photos.
