This route ascends the next major waterfall to the right of Miller Might. It is recognizable by the huge rock roof with the attached hanging ice curtain. Ensure your belay is out of the "firing line" for this ice curtain, large pieces have broken off and narrowly missed belayers! Climb ramps and ledges for about 350 feet using mixed, ice, rock and snow techniques to reach a ledge at the base of the main ice section. The next 200 feet ascend difficult rock (up to 5.9) and ice for about 50 feet to reach some WI3 ice and a ledge at the base of the upper pillars. Climb the vertical pillars and belay under the huge roof above. Rappell the route to descend. A mixed and technical masterpiece that does not see many successful ascents.
