DescriptionA fat, fun climb that offers about 800 feet of stepped ice with minimal snow slogging. Descent is best made by walking off to the climbers right at about 3/4 height. This takes you down a few snow filled gullies to the base of Goldrush. Multiple v-threads are usualy fixed, BUT THINK BEFORE YOU THREAD - ALL THAT NYLON GOES SOMEWHERE IN THE SPRING!!!!
This is a good climb for a solid leader in the grade looking to play in the mountains!
This is the second obvious, ice-choked gully on your left as you round the large buttress just past the Outward Bound Hotel. The approach from the parking lot is about 1/2 mile and is usually well packed making snow shoes/skis not always mandatory.
