The climb is located in the Malamute Valley, in the right hand (east) fork of Claw Creek. The first three pitches are the pay off - steep, (but relatively short) section of grade 5 ice. There are two other easier pitches further above these first three - they are grade 3 or easy 4.

5 out of 5 stars Fun route

Had to wait for a party to climb it, but it was worth it. Very nice route - likely the best in the Claw Creek drainage.
