A rare route that can be climbed mixed but with very poor protection. Work up two steps on thin sheets to the third step and ‘cogar’ shaped crux pillar. Carefully climb the skinny ‘stogie’ to a large, mid-height ledge and follow fatter ice to the trees. The small crux pillar (cigar) is usually thin and weak with less than desirable gear. There is an old pin found on the left wall of the second step but serves little use.

Descent Options:

One rap from the sling anchor on the right-side tree with double ropes. Two single raps (one from the top tree and a second from the tree at mid-way ledge) will work as well due to the tangle of bushes at the mid-height ledge. Gear: Variety of screws,

4 out of 5 stars Hasn't been in for a while

Good little route to test your nerves, if it's in. Haven't seen it in a few years. Not sure if it will ever come back in.
