DescriptionThe start and finish are steep, the rest is often a snowslog. In low snow conditions or late in the season, the midsection may be bare, low-angle slab.
There is a potential variation, pulling through an overhanging crack system at the eyebrow overhang's upper end, that would be quite difficult mixed climbing.
There may be more ice/steep snow climbing above, leading into a major gully slanting up the mountain. This could be a worthwhile "alpine" ascent line.
LocationApproach: Take the BAW path past the height of land, until you see a crag with a large, square-cut overhang 20' up, on the left side of the trail.
Cut up the slope left of this to the base of the main cliff and walk left ~100', to the middle of a slab lying right of and beneath a large, "eyebrow" overhang (overhanging wall slanting up right).
This route is left of Sola Gratia.
Descent: a 70m rappel slanting (climber's) right will just barely reach "Blueberry Ledge", which can be scrambled down climber's left.
