Description 

Another great moderate climb just left of Arm & Hammer/Tendonitis. The first section is easy climbing that leads to a large ledge. Above the ledge is a steeper headwall that leads to a tree belay. The route is very wide.


Location 

Head up the gully to the left of the base of Tendonitis and climb the left facing wall of ice on the right hand side.


Protection 

2 rap anchors along the route so double ropes are not required.

The route is "very wide"?? I think you were lost. MG is about the narrowest line at NFOP.

Gunkiemike, I think he means the second step after the snowfield. That section is pretty wide.

I would not call the first step easy climbing. The headwall can be steep and bulged out making it a tricky crux for the grade. Also, I think the correct spelling is Moss Ghyll.
