Rapping off the route after a good day of climbing...
Snotty Nosed Brat is an obvious line that forms in the creek just to the right of the Direct North Face. The difficulty of this climb varies depending on how fat the ice is. It usually ranges from WI3 in mid-season to WI5 early in the season. To descend, rappel from a large tree atop the route with double ropes.
This is the line of ice that forms just to the right of the Direct North Face.

I found this route to be excellent! The gully it is in is fairly protected and thus the ice doesnt see a whole lot of sun. The left side was not formed up and I assume that would be WI3, but the right side was formed up with hard, thick vertical ice.
