Description

A pitch of moderate ice that is rarely in due to its Southern exposure.

Location

Park at the sign on US 160 for Wolf Creek Rd. This road is not maintained in winter, but it almost always has a large plowed pullout for backcountry skiers aspiring to ski the "hourglass" and for all the snowmobilers. If it isn't plowed, the avy danger on your approach is likely to be too high.

Walk back up US 160 and slog up the drainage on the North side of the road to the cliff band and the climb. It seems to be a lot further than it initially looks. Snowshoes might be helpful.

This climb can be scouted from the road.

Protection

Screws.
