Description

Though easily accessible and popular as a hike in the summer and a ski tour in winter (with access through Snowbird certain days in the spring), the north aspect in some years has sprouted a fine ice climb that, when combined with hard snow/snice conditions in the couloir above, makes for a fun, mini-alpine outing. Unfortunately, access to this route is forbidden when Snowbird is operating as a ski area. The entire north aspect is considered a closed area and only opened to skiing in certain locations a few days a season, if at all. It is also in plain view of the Snowbird Patrol shack on Hidden Peak, so poachers take note and plan well.

Getting There

Those interested in climbing these fine falls will approach through Gad Valley, six or so miles up Little Cottonwood Canyon. The best parking is right at the bridge to the parking lot in Entry 2, just before the Tram Base.
