Description

A variety of crags are accessible from the Snow Creek parking lot. The largest is Snow Creek Wall, which largely faces east.

Getting There

The parking lot is about 4.3 miles up Icicle Creek Road. As it is also the parking for hikes into Snow Lakes and the Enchantments, it tends to fill up. A NW Forest pass is required to park here.
