Comments: Logan, a buddy and i also managed to hop on it this past month, your photos look like it's coming in nicely compared to a few weeks ago! When we climbed it we also thought it looked fairly intimidating (the ice you're climbing in your photos wasn't touching down, and didn't start for 15-20 feet), so we ended up top roping the route.

Comments: Are the anchors for this the ones higher up or a a little down? I top roped it from the higher ones and it seems to me like they are meant for some climb to the left....

Comments: Super fun route. Topping out right I'd say is probably a harder V5 IMO. If you go left, there is a crack forming around the horn, so be careful.

Comments: I didn't think you needed a cam. Some of the top moves are scary.
