|it's at least 3 miles out to the amphitheater... I hiked out with Eric Marshall on 01.17.10 and it was a long slog for not very tall ice. maybe in the spring this place would be good after everything else comes down from the sun.|

So, the ravine is small, and not very tall - about 20-40m depending upon where you start. Also for the approach:
It is a terrible slog, post-holing through un-trammeled bushwack, and once you turn south from the pond you have to climb about 400' to the top of the ravine to get to the ice. I did it on 4/9/15, and it took over an hour from the rope swing on the west side of the pond.
Going down was easier, as you can (and we did) boot glissade almost the whole way down the gully, then posthole back over to the AT. Up was 2+hours, down was 1.5 hours (to the car).
