Description 

Follow the gully to the start of the first tier. Climb up to the second tier. If you want to do laps here, walk off to the left and cut sharp left again at a big tree to get back to the base of the second tier. The right side is WI-3 and is the longest of the 4 sections. If you do the other 2 tiers above, walk off to the right and down. You may have to jump over some short 5 foot cliff bands depending on your choice of line. Enjoy!

Protection 

Bring a few screws to lead the second tier. A good place for someone to learn to lead.

This is a great place to go for some ice bouldering! The condition of the main flow changes quite frequently, and is usually short, but fun.

Quite easy to spot from the Racquet Club parking lot. Make sure you ask for parking permit at the Racquet Club House. The street names in the "Getting There" on the "Racquet Club Area" page are WRONG! Use this GPS coordinate for parking lot location: N39 37.830 W106 17.467 (8554 ft). You will come across fair amount of backcountry boarders/skiers. Thanks to them the path to this spot is usually packed down.
