Couple of notes...Pitch 1 - Climb thin and gradually steepening ice to a short vertical section. Pump past this to a ledge out left and belay. Belay off tree and screw if possible. Pitch 2 - May vary depending on conditions. We were able to place a bomber #1 cam in a horizontal crack just off the belay before reaching the ice pillar. Continue up right past the crux to a stance and a rest. Climb easier ice to a belay tree at the top.
