(I also posted this on the Itchy and Scratchy route page)
Also sometime in early January, Christian Burrell, Brett Anderson, and myself climbed another two pitches on top of these routes. We're not sure if the upper two pitches had been climbed before (probably has). Brett led the first pitch, I led the second, and Christian led the third. Each pitch is easier than the one preceding it.
From the top of Itchy and Scratchy or Pipe Dream, walk north over a (sometimes) frozen stream to a small, 20-foot high WI2-3 ice pillar. Sink in a couple screws above that to belay from.
Climb the very low-angled, very easy (but relatively thin--Brett bent one of his picks on the rock underneath) WI2 ice up to the base of the cement wall/pipeline. Use screws to belay from. There is a square shaped hole in the wall that all of the water that forms these climbs come from.
We just traversed off to the left and didn't need to rappel.
This is probably the easiest multipitch ice climb in the canyon.

|We TR'd the right side and so glad we did. The whole thing made lots of very disconcerting sounds...|

The left side (and the right side to probably) can easily be top-roped by walking around the left side and slinging a tree.
Fun area. We hit it up after work and did laps on it until 730 using headlamps.
