Nice route on the granite rocks of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Channel 4 News did a story on ice climbing here in 2001 with us.


Two pitches, first pitch is very easy, WI 2-3. Second pitch ends with a 15 foot pillar. Descent is best rappelling off trees.

Toprope Protection

Half way up the route there are pitons in the rock for toproping.
