Great climb with a great belay on a big tree at the top. On 2/27/10 the top left was just thin shell of ice but the right was very nice.

This climb was in great; it was long and steep, unlike some of the pictures from prior years that I've seen. It was pretty much dead-vertical for 80 feet or so, and didn't have much of a walk-up at the bottom. It took all 8 of my screws to lead it, and I was definitely running it out between a few of the screws. We climbed the left, which was smoother and easier to put screws in. The right was pretty wet and chandelier-like. We then set up a toprope anchor off of the big tree at the top.
