White Nightmare 12/27/03
A well traveled route that gets pounded up pretty good.
P1 - (WI4-5) Climb a steep curtain that usually takes screws well. Find a two bolt anchor above the curtain on the left.
P2 - (WI4-5) Tool over a step to a longer section of steep ice.
Check avalanche conditions before climbing in this area.
Massive avalanches rip down this drainage nearly every year.
Bring a variety of ice screws. Long ice screws are useful on the first pitch.
Third section of ice to the right of Bridal Veil Falls.

Can easily be climbed with a single 70m rope with two raps. Much easier with double ropes though. Climb is much less than 200 feet long. Probably closer to 150.
Both pitches are fully bolted. P1 has chain anchors on the right (obvious from the ground). P2 has bolted anchors on the left as you top out.
