This route is one drainage to the left of High On Boulder. It is also probably one of the top three South Fork classics. Proceed with the same approach to High On Boulder, heading left once you get into the trees. There is usually a good game trail leading right to the base. The first pith is a vein of ice trending to the left of the cliff face, a full rope length. Belay from screws. The second is about half a rope length of steeper ice. Belay from screws. A tree may be used to belay from, but it is tucked a ways back, and might make for a rope stretcher. This is as far as I have been up this route, so I will end the description there. Winter Dance has a great description of the rest of the pitches.

Descent Options:

Rappel the ice from v-threads. The guidebook mentions chains at the top of the first, however when I was up there in 2005, I could not find them.
