A very bulgy and shallow-angle route, but long for the area; can break into two pitches. Generally WI2, but in thin conditions can be hard for the grade.
First climb on the left side of the road, going up 23A towards the bridge. It starts behind the guardrail, just off the road.
Standard ice rack. Walk off or rappel (if you can find rappel anchors); a single 60m rope will just make it.

On the second tier, the right is WI2-3, the left is a lot harder when ice is in (WI3+).

The route is closer to 130 feet and a 60m rope will NOT suffice for the rap. You can still do it, but rap first down the steep upper part to the tree on the right, then to the road. Slings are usually in place to allow this.
