This route is situated in Glacier Gorge, just a few minutes east of Reflections, on the south side of the gorge. It is hard to see from below. It is easy to see from farther west, up the gorge. The route consists of two short curtains. The first pitch is about 20' tall. Scramble across a snowy ledge and select the line for the second curtain, which is about 30' tall. It will go very easy on the right and very much harder on the left. Up the center seems to be the path of least resistance. Overall, it seems to be just a bit harder than the Crypt. Note: this insignificant flow was probably soloed 30 years ago with a single Terrordactyl. Hence, the name. It gets a star for the multiple variations possible on the second pitch.


Ice Screws should suffice. First Pitch will take mid-length screws and second pitch will take long screws. Bring slings for trees.

Toprope Protection 

The first pitch can be top-roped easily by climbing a guly on the left. The second pitch would probably need t be led first, but can be top-roped.
