BETA PHOTO: K9? 1/19/10

Description 

Climb the narrow cornered ice gully. Protection is limited usually because the ice although firmly there is not thick enough, high up on the climb for ice screws. The crux is getting around the bend in the narrow ice runnel at the large rock outcrop. Then the top is direct and easier.


Location 

This flow is between Triple corners and almost to the Waimea wall. walk up trail to Waimea from Black Jack Boulders until you reach it.


Protection 

Ice screws and bring small ones for the narrows.
