This area has the largest concentration of climbs in Big Meadows mostly in the WI3 - WI5/M5 range. The area is South facing and it is one of the warmest areas around which can be great in cold temps but means the ice deteriorates quickly in warm ones. All climbs are melt fed and form up mid to late season most years.
If the creek is frozen, you can hike in the packed road for 1/4 mile and preview the climbs at a distance before snowshoeing over the creek to the climbs of your choice. Otherwise, go right before the bridge on the old road and take it in to the climbs.
