Description 

Many, many steps of WI2-3 up the west drainage (bear right) of Avalanche Canyon places you at the base of a WI4 pillar/curtain. Atop the pillar, head climbers right on a steep forested slope to the final 200' WI4 headwall. The final headwall can be done in one or two pitches. Probably best done as one, but it is LONG.

THIS IS A MAJOR AVALANCHE PATH. CHECK CONDITIONS BEFORE CLIMBING OR APPROACHING.

Location 

Once across the creek, however you got there, the trail heads up Avalanche Canyon from behind a concrete structure. The first pitch starts up a WI3 section with an amphitheater (w/ graffiti) on the left.

Descend from slings on trees and walk down/around some sections through the trees.

Protection 

We took 8 screws plus some for anchors, tat for v-threads/trees, and two 60 m ropes for the descent.

Is the final 200ft curtain also known as "Big Blue," or is that another area entirely?

Having just climbed this today, I can confirm that the big blue curtain seen form the road that I'd seen referenced as "Big Blue" is in fact that final pitch to FMR.

You can bypass the first approach pitch by walking around to the east (up-canyon). Above the second waterfall, bear right, then you can either stay left to enter the amphitheater described above, or keep right and climb a steep pitch (WI4/5) in a tight canyon. Both lead up to Big Blue, AKA FMR.
