Climbed a route there on Tuesday afternoon with a buddy. Don't know what one or name or anything but I can give a description...

Starting hiking up what looked like an easy exit gully. 1/3 the way up there was a cleft in the cliff with a 4 foot wide section of ice about 40 feet tall. A series of vertical bulges lead up with a 6" diameter tree for an anchor on the top left. Small rock stems helped. I'll post photos later to maybe help. Hiked directly up the scree field across from a small pull off on the access road.

What # pull out were you parked at from the 141 gate?

Anthony,think I have been on that one once before from the description.If it is what I think it is ,the other climbs would be a few hundred feet to climbers left.

I don't know what number pull off as we had to park outside the gate. We didn't get there until 3:30pm and had to hussle. We walked up the road maybe 10 minutes and headed up the scree field.

By only walking down the road 10 minutes you didn't reach the more popular spots. I have also done some small but steep ice ribbons a couple hundred yards in both direction from the second turn out. When you top out were you at the "UMASS" wind machine. That's a nice climb. Directly across from the 2nd turn out. Up and to the left. Really cool up there, approach is always sketchy without snow. Peace
