This ice flow grows big and fat right on-top of the rock route "Black Buttress". A nice mountaineering adventure with snow, ice, and rock.
P1 (WI 3/M4+): Start at small to body sized right facing icicle. Stem and mantel to gain snice-ramp. Follow to huge snowledge and belay off tree. 30 ft.
P2 (WI4+): Move right along snowledge to access fat Blue Buttress proper and continue to trees. 50ft
Screws and #2 Camelot to protect first few moves.
