Fun climb, but there's a lot of other good stuff up that way that's longer and might make for a better day. The sun never seemed to hit it though, so the ice was in good, wet, plastic shape! Transient Alterations, across the creek, fell down in the sun while we were on the route. We goofed up on approach and walked straight up the creek late in the season. We ended up having to eventually climb out of the canyon up to the path that runs along the east rim. That made for an epicly long day in soaking wet boots, but at least the weather was warm.
