Hike directly up creek to deep chimney on right. Scramble up ice/rock to base of 1st steep ice. Climb short step to 10m ledge followed by 5m curtain/tube in a tight corner, (this step often thin and hollow). Scramble up 20m slab for P-2, then continue to the final 35m pitch in the back of deep chimney on a left facing wall (crux). Belay from bolts/chain anchors at top. Belay anchor #2 located directly above 2nd pitch on climber's right.


Large trailhead parking on right side of road 4.3 miles from the Hunter Creek Road fork just before Deer Creek Bridge.


Ice screws. Placements solid on horizontal stances - 12/22/06.

We never found the bolt anchors on top of the climb. There was a pretty bomber bush that had slings wrapped around three or four medium branches that made for a reasonable anchor.
