Directions:  Just right of Detention Corner, the obvious chimney/corner in the middle of the crag. Look for a tongue of ice that comes out of the top of the Detention Corner chimney. The route starts directly below this tongue.
Description: A difficult mixed start that begins on blocky rock up a gently overhanging face, that rapidly gets harder. Toproped only in 2005!
    Pitch 1: Climb the overhanging rock face face to a block just below the ice. Move up to the ice (crux) to the tongue of ice. Once on the ice continue to the top of Detention Corner.

Gear: rock rack and short screws
Descent: Rap from trees using a single rope.
History:  WInter  - Brad White toprope
