Description 

A fun single-pitch outing on some variable terrain. Figure out how to cross the open creek to access the ice. Climb up some 70-80 degree steps mixed with easier ramps for about 80 feet until you hit the alders. At this point, weave a path through the alders and tunnel your way up through steep (and sometimes deep) snow. You may be able to tie off some alders for protection here. A final ice bulge is passed on the left to any number of tree anchors.


Location 

This is the first route encountered on the left side during the approach, near the mouth of the canyon.


Protection 

Screws, maybe some slings for alders, tree anchor. Easy walk off to climber's left.
