Description 

The third and final of the big routes in the main area. This is Inferior Icefall's little brother. It can be made to have an alpine flair in heavy snow cover by extending the approach pitch.

Approach (Easy Snow) Climb snowy gully system
Pitch 1 (WI 2) Hop onto the ice when it feels comfortable and climb about 75 feet until the route notably steepens.
Pitch 2 (WI 2+) Climb the steeper upper sections for about 150 feet to the top.

Protection 

Screws
