The start has a few committing and thin moves until you get into the crack proper. Sustained climbing. A great test piece to mixed and placing own gear. Exit over lip can be tricky with thin ice. It has several other names, but Jensen's is the local name.


It is about 10 feet to the right of Newt's Pillar (main upper pillar). Scramble onto shelf and start into obvious, crack system.


The crack gobbles smaller TCUs, and there is a fixed angle mid-way. At exit onto ice, one can place a #1 Camalot. This shares anchors at top respectfully.
