P1: 20m; bulge to snow-ice ramp base.

P2: 60m; crux toward top.

P3: Hike up creek 100m to last 20m bulge. Snow was quite hard-angled in some areas and thigh-deep in others.

Another Cody classic & considered by locals to be one of the "easiest" approaches. Yee-ha Cody - This AIN'T NO sport climbing..!


From the Ishawooa Mesa Trailhead, turn left at fork onto Hunter Creek Rd. Cross S.Fork River and Boulder Creek (1.2mi) and continue to the Kestral Ranch (3.8mi). Just before a cattle guard, across from ranch is a rocky road to left that leads to a parking area at base of foothills. Trail climbs up rise to low-angle bench on the left. See book Winter Dance for more detailed directions if needed.


Usual rack of screws, single rope. Fairly good V-thread at top which can be backed up with additional pro.
