Description:

the first pitch is easy (WI3) and provides a good descent route. the harder 2nd pitch goes up the left side of the chimney and involves thin and poorly protected climbing.

Descent Options:

generally it is possible to descend from this route down the snow gully on the descender's right (climber's left). this descent also will work for many of the preceding climbs. you can also rappel.

3 out of 5 stars Fat Ice

Really good ice with lots of options. Last pitch was really bulgy and hooked out though.
