West side of Greeley northern pond
The ice flow north of the large buttress.
A series of mini ravines, vera-glass slabs, a very narrow gully, and N.E.I.C.E flows. Best in the morning because this east facing section on Mt. Osceola doesn't get afternoon sun. It also tends to get storms stuck there as they pass through the giant obstruction of Oseola Mt.
