Directions:  Start on Standard route.
Description: A very serious climb in a truly spectacular location. Bring both your runout rock and ice climbing skills.
    Pitch 1: Climb the direct start to Standard Route or the normal start up the flake with the step-over to Toe Crack. Continue over to the right and belay atop a large block at a 2-bolt anchor.

    Pitch 2: Climb the runout dike to a 2-bolt anchor just left of the column.

    Pitch 3: Make a desperate move across to the ice and climb the column to the top.

Gear: standard rack and ice gear, double ropes will definitely help.
Descent: walk off from the top of the cliff down the climber's trail
History:  WInter 1978 - Chris Rowins, Tiger Burns
