Directions:  If the lake is frozen solid (look for ice fishing shacks) walk across. The climb is to the right of Woober Goober Gully.
Description: On the first ascent the start was very thin ice for 40' and required 3 pins. Continue up low angle ice for 110'. Belay below a steep short 20' curtain. Follow low to moderate ice bulges for 180' to a small birch tree on the left side of the flow.
Gear: standard ice rack and several pins
Descent: Rappel from the small birch tree at the final belay or v-threads. With 2 60 meter ropes you can get all the way to the ground in one rap, ending up at the start of Woober Goober.
