Description 

DESCRIPTION and photos are given as part of the complete description of Hitchcock Gully, listed in the East Face LOWER Area, but inserted here as many will climb it after doing Cinema or Monkey Wrench.

Location 

Just right of the East Face ("Left") Slabs

DESCENT- There is a fixed anchor on a large birch tree on the right side, below the last bit of ice. Use 2 ropes to get back to the flat area at the base, although a single 70m should get close to the steep snow just below the ice, depending on ice and snow levels in any given year.

Protection 

usual ice screws
