DescriptionThis flow lies high on the side of the mountain near its western corner. A flow runs down the slabs and flaps west of and above the Wayout Wall.
This is mostly a snow-hike, with one steep section and several optional, WI 2 - 3 steps.
For the climbing-oriented, it isn't worth doing; for alpine hikers, this is a good excuse to pull out the tool and points. The trip explores some of Crane's wilder areas.
Note that in unstable conditions, avalanches are possible here (as with all the routes on the mountain).
LocationApproach as for the Wayout Wall. Directly to its west, follow a ravine running upslope. At its end, continue north following a drainage area. This becomes low-angle, open slabs/snowslopes.
One steep step is usually snow-free ice, and several flaps, steps, and short faces lie above, all of which can be avoided by using wooded slopes to the sides.
