Description

Following the rock route of the same name , this route combines a very narrow strip of low-angle ice on the first pitch with a fat band of ice in an exposed setting on the second.
The crux is passing the lower bulge of the steep flow on the second pitch, though the emaciated strip of ice leading to it allows little protection.

Location

Near the western edge of the Beaverview Wall's main (tallest) section. Approach by walking west from the trailhead or ascending the summit trail to just below the Viewpoint then heading west, losing elevation as you go. It takes about an hour to get to the route.
Descent is via a series of rappels to the west or a bodacious bushwhack upslope and eastward to gain one of the hiking trails.

Protection

Screws and ice hooks.
