Description

A well traveled route that gets pounded up pretty good.

P1 (WI4-5): Climb a steep curtain that usually takes screws well. Find anchors above the curtain out left (chains on the right face are for a mixed route).

P2 (WI4-5): Tool over a step to a longer section of steep ice. Top out at bolted anchors on the left.

Descent: Rappel from bolted anchors.

Check avalanche conditions before climbing in this area.
Massive avalanches rip down this drainage nearly every year.

Protection

Pro: Bring a variety of ice screws. Long ice screws are useful on the first pitch.
Rope: 70m rope (two rappels) or doubles (one rappel)
Anchors: Bolted - P1 has anchors above the curtain on the left, P2 anchors are on the left as you top out.

Location

Third section of ice to the right of Bridal Veil Falls.

Can easily be climbed with a single 70m rope with two raps. Much easier with double ropes though. Climb is much less than 200 feet long. Probably closer to 150.

Both pitches have bolted anchors. Dec 9, 2013

Really fun route. Long dead vertical section after the first ledge on P1 definitely WI4, maybe WI5. P2 ends up being more vertical than expected, WI2 most of the way then WI3+ on the last 20 ft. Stay on the left side to get to bolted anchors on both pitches.

If you climb when it's above freezing be sure to wear your gore-tex, prepare to be rained on. Jan 14, 2015
