Please respect the mining claims in this area.

Description 

Although it's only about 30 feet of climbing, this offers a good challenge for climbers moving into protecting steeper ice on lead. A nice, mixed option just to the left of the ice climbs a clean, featured face for a second lap. Ice bouldering and/or downclimb options exist to the left.

Location 

Looker's left on the crag, this is the steepest substantial looking bit of ice as you approach the area. From the grassy flats below the cliffs, walk a few hundred feet up the talus slope to the left.

Protection 

Climbing skill... or screw(s) and optional nut placement in a crack to left. Beware, the ice gets SE sun-hit (PG-13). There is a good pool above the climb for anchoring into. A top-rope is possible with screws in this pool or by using boulders.
