Jewel Lake ice in the snow. Gorgeous, mellow day ...

Description 

This ice flow may have a real name. If so, please post. It seemed worth entering this as distinct sections for a few more details.

This small, ice crag is split into 2 sides. The right side is broader and probably could accomodate up to 4-5 parties. Maybe it has with an ice class? Overall, it looks steeper than it climbs. It is never vertical. The ice can be a bit funky as it can be much colder here than at the trailhead. It is fairly thin on top, as well.

Descent: you can rappel (~85') off a tree with slings & rap rings on the left side of this flow or walk off to the right.


Location 

You can actually see this from Jewel Lake, perhaps 2 o'clock when facing Black Lake. It has a slight yellow tint to the ice down the obvious drainage off Thatchtop. Richard's directions were great. You may be able to ski to within 100' of the ice. ~3 1/4 miles. ~900' vertical gain. ~1.5 h approach.


Protection 

Ice screws. Slings for directionals.

Slings with rap rings around tree at the top of the Center Flow. Traverse an icy stream to get to the tree. Crampons might be handy.
