BETA PHOTO: First pitch.
This route is located just past Lincoln Falls, on the North Face and is directly across the valley from the Sleepy Hallow Cabin. The approach time is about 30 minutes.
Climb up the vertical cornice to the base of the water ice.
Pitch 1. WI4 M3, 110 feet, belay in the cave.
Pitch 2. M3, 110 feet, squeeze through the cave, and and climb rock and tuff to a ledge with a bush and an anchor. Rappel the route.
A few ice screws, thin pitons, and a small rock rack.
