From the bottom

Description 

On the North East side of the lake a thin water fall freezes up and smears down an open gulley. The ice is thin but well adhered to the rock underneath and very climbable when we climbed it. There is a few near vertical sections close to the bottom which only require 2 or three moves to get over and there is lots of opportunity for rest along the route. We rated it a W13 only because the ice is too thin for good protection and the rock along the side doesn't give much opportunity either. Otherwise most of the climbing was W12 with lots of fun features and well worth climbing.

Location 

On the North East side of the lake there is a tall obvious granite hill coming all the way down to the water. The route is easy to find along the tallest part of this hill.

Protection 

At the very top of the climb the ice builds a lot thicker and we were able to sink long screws in. The rest of the climb was too thin to protect with screws. There is a few alders and boulders along the route for a stable belay station but the leader will probably climb the route minimally protected at best.
