Description

A fat flow with many variations. A sixty meter rope will barely make the rappel with a creative party, but two ropes is much easier.

The position of the climb offers a great view of Mt. Webster's west ridge.

The area may be a better option to rappel from the Upper Hitchcock Gully if a second party is waiting.

Location

Upper east face. Climb lower Hitchcock or Left Hand Monkey Wrench, then hike up and to the right (north) of the Lower Hitchcock gully to gain the bottom of pitch.

Protection

Standard ice rack
