Description

Pitch 1 (5.3): Climb the nice looking, but extremely sand crack in a dihedral to a ledge. Move left from the rockhouse and bushwhack vertically to a ledge below the second pitch.

Pitch 2 (5.5): Climb the face next to the right arching crack to a committing top out.

Location

From Whiteout, walk left around the corner to a left facing dihedral. Rappel the route. It has been reported that you can walk off from the belay ledge, but I do not have first hand knowledge of this descent.

Protection

First pitch is mostly hand sized gear. Second pitch is small and medium sized cams.

I agree. When I did it I got to the summit moves only to discover the upper edge of the cliff coated in ice. Somehow I made it past and topped out, but my poor heart was damaged from the stress. Jul 6, 2015

Topping out the second pitch can be dangerous in wet conditions, got in an awkward spot trying to paw up mud and threw for a sappling which held to save me from an awkward fall. Best to attempt in slightly drier conditions, route doesn't dry well due to being in a dihedral. View from the top is cool though. Mar 18, 2015
