This is a long route. Make the pitches start and end where you want them too. It is a good climb so the hike is worth it. Your ropes will be wet after this climb.


This climb is on the north side of the Portage River. It is the first climb when you drive into the valley.


Ice screws. Alders exist on this climb. Bring v-thread material just incase.
