Description:

The huge flow up the middle of the cliff.... Really fun, one of the best ice climbs at Rumney.... Melts a lot on a sunny day but rebuilds well most nights.... Easier if you start at the left and work right following the lower-angle moves.... Probably WI4+ if you go straight up the steepest parts...Like most ice climbs the difficulty is subject to conditions.... This is a really nice place to be on a winter day looking out from the cliff top at the Baker River and hilly landscape...Reminds you what a nice place Rumney is, all climbing aside.... * Taken from MountainProject.com

Descent Options:

Walk off left of rap. Need a 60m for the single rope rap.
