DescriptionA 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.
ProtectionPro: 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.
