Description

From the end of FR 585 at the South Mineral Campground this is the prominent line of ice visible up to the left. Most only climb the first 2-3 pitches of stepped WI3-4 then rap off. Easier WI2-3 continues above. Descend by rapping the route with doubles. There are two bolted anchors, both are on the left side. The first is ~200', and the second is ~150' higher.

There is also another pitch of ice to the left of the main couloir. It is ~150', WI3. There is no fixed anchor on this one. Do a v-thread or find a suitable tree.

Location

About 4.3 miles up FR 585. This is the prominent line of ice up and to the left of the road.

Protection

A selection of screws.
