Description 

Oosik is the Eskimo name for walrus penis bone. It ascends up a right facing corner that gets narrower and steeper as it goes up. The first section is a great warm up with two crux sections both on the upper half. The corner section is a blast and offers some fine steaming and the last 30' will leave you with a good pump. Top the cliff band out and walk off right or rappel the route with V threads and alders. This climb can be done in one full 70 meter pitch.

Protection 

Oosik is protected ice screws or slinging a few alders on the way up. Descend the route by walking off right or rappelling off V threads and alders.
