Directions:  Walk North on the Railroad Tracks until you come to the trestle. Walk across the trestle and continue down the tracks until you see a large flow on the left with a cave in the middle. This is Standard Route. Continue down the tracks about 200' past Standard to a chute. This is Dracula. Hike up the hill and then follow the trail to the right.
Description: This area has a variety of routes that cover the gamut of hard vertical ice to overhanging to full-on mixed climbing. Definitely a place to get a pump. Many of these climbs are toproped, but try not to beat them to death, there ARE folks who can lead these things!
Gear: Standard ice rack plus an assortment of rock gear and pins.
