Description:

Classic climb in the Laurentians. Originally done with one wooden shafted ice axe, and ten point crampons. Left Facing big corner. 60m single pitch climb. Two variations, one fairly straight up with a slabby start to short vertical sections with good ice usually. The other is easyish mixed (M2-M3?) with some pins for pro and maybe maybe on a good year some stubbies.

Descent Options:

double rap or walk off right.
