Description 

This climb is visible from town as an apparently unconnected series of thin smears and Steve narrow ribbons of ice on a rock band high above and across on a wet day the first Ascent party connected the ice with delicate climbing, some protected by pitons and at one point near the top they encountered a ribbon under which rock was visible and which was only two feet wide. A short leader fall was held by a rock beat on. The start is to the left of the main body of ice and the middle section is somewhat low angle. The Crux moves are at the top on a 60 foot ribbon. A few thin pitons may be useful here. Descend by alders ( route description courtesy of Andy Embick)

Location 

This is one of the first routes you will encounter on the east side of the river. It is located a thousand feet up hill on a cliff ban and is clearly visible from the Nordic ski trails system.

Protection 

Ice screws, alder, pitons, v threads
