Pic from the first ascent. Short but pumpy and pow...
Climb the small steep curtain of ice(~15ft) spilling off the ledge to the right of the very bottom of Yukon Jon. Now climb the overhanging crack to a shallow, slightly overhanging inside corner with a crack in the back and a fixed piece. Up this and pull over the lip/arete on the top right and easy scrambling will get you up to the big tree to rap down.
Located at the bottom of the Yukon Jon gully. Rappel off the large tree at the top of the climb.
I used a few tcu's, a couple nuts and a 1" cam. There is a wired hex in the upper corner for a fixed piece. A screw or two may be desired for the ice.
