Description

A fun long route with a great setting. The climbing is predominantly on snow with a few mixed pitches to gain the ramp. Many possible variations exist as well as the possibility of combining this route with others such as the West Gully of Black Lake.

Location

Start in the middle of the concave east face of McHenry's. Climb up a few pitches to gain an left leaning ramp, then climb this to the summit ridge.

Protection

A light mixed rack.
