Depending on how well it's formed, the crux is either at the chimney or at the very top exit move.


Double-rope rappel or walk off to the left towards Wilmington (walk off is a pain - no trail - pretty alpine exit).


Screws and small trad rack if it's thin (fist-sized cam for the crux chimney if the ice is thin).

Not fun to follow another party up. An inexperienced climber will rain ice chunks down the narrow chute. Only time I've ever been bloodied. Be the first there in the morning or just wait for the party ahead to rap down.

I'll second Adam's comment. There's really no sense in hopping on the route with a party above whether they're experienced or inexperienced. Ice will inevitably be sent down the gully, and you WILL be in the firing line. A short first pitch up to the cedars on the left will set you up for a money 2nd pitch to the top.

Yep, I wouldn't bother parking if there's another car in the lot.

You can belay at the cedars or at a pin right below the crux. The first pitch is short to very short, and quite easy. The second pitch is long and varied, with excellent climbing.

Steep Approach! Fun first pitch and an excellent 2nd pitch! 60m rope needed for the 2nd pitch! Great views and winds make it feel like an alpine route

With a 70m rope it can just barely be done in a single pitch.
