DescriptionThis climb seems to form consistently and typically forms 3+ pitches.
P1: follow the low angle slab to the ledge belay from a the fixed webbing on a tree 20 feet up and right.
P2: from the tree, move left and climb up to the next shelf. Belay from a tree with fixed webbing about 10 feet up and right.
P3: slog through the snow for about 70 feet to the base of the third pitch. Climb the third pitch, and either find a tree or v-thread to rappel to the belays to reach the bottom.
Note: double 60m ropes are required for the rappel beta.
Rack: rock pro and screws.
Drive 1.3 miles past the seasonal closure to a pullout on the left side of the road. From here, look directly left and see the ice. Cross the stream and hike up the gully to the base.
