Description 

Rain Check is a good choice for climbing in the Valdez area when avalanche conditions are high, as the route ends atop the canyon with no major snow slopes above.

A moderate "approach" pitch past a short but steep step and a long snowy ramp leads to the base of the long crux pitch. Belay from screws. Many paths can be taken through the crux P2 pillar depending on conditions, ~45M long. Belay from healthy trees atop P2.

Location 

The first big flow seen on the right side of the canyon as you hike in. ~15 min ski/snowshoe. Rappel from trees and v-thread.

Protection 

Screws, v-thread materials, tree anchor/rap atop P2.
