O' Christmas Tree

Rating: WI5

This ice climb attacks the more prominent and more consistently developed steep overhanging ice on the right side of the Amphitheatre. A thick set of cicles drops from a rim on the canyon wall and usually touches down to the fat curtain, Curtain Call, that marks the beginning of this ice climb.
