Directly above the Geographic Factor is a gully at the Crows Nest. Hidden in the depths of this gully is a fun grade 3 ice route. A mellow ramp leads to two options. Finishing right up a slab provides a nice grade 3 cruise. Finishing right up a small curtain proves to be a bit more of an exciting affair at 3+/-4.


Directly above Geographic factor. Can be accessed by hiking there (eek!), by climbing Prestor John or Geographic Factor, or by scrambling up the gully to the right.


Those metal tubey things.

I was just looking at the water streaks today while at the Crow's Nest and wondered what it would look like in the winter!! May 21, 2012

got on this today for the first time... thanks for posting the picture and getting me psyched on it... there seems to be a few variations to it... today they seemed WI2+ (on the right)and WI3+ (on the left) i did the left... very fun...

as for being the highest on the cliff, i hiked up the gully between yellowknife and hinterlands today to find some ice ive seen from the road... there looks to be some sweet stuff there when its in.... right now its no good (ill post a photo) anyway its another out of the way spot that is high on the mountain...

I couldn't find any info on this route in the guide book so if any body knows more please contribute. The route is pretty cool as It's, to my knowledge, the highest ice climb on the cliffs, putting you in a pretty cool position. Jan 19, 2010
