I saw this ice climb a few years ago while hiking Argentine Peak.  Since my wife was out of town, I decided to check it out.  The climb isn't worth the time or effort to get to it, but I had the time and it is not a big commitment.  I soloed up the easiest line and then walked off to climber's left back down to the base of the ice climb.
