Description

The Lower Eagle Lake Ice is wide but never more than one pitch in length and gets harder from left to right. On climber's left, several WI2 and WI3 lines are possible. On climber's right, you can find some WI4 and more difficult mixed lines. Walk-off down steep snow to climber's right.

Protection

This is fat, blue ice in the Spring. Bring the long screws and leave the stubbies for the Fall. Some boulders sit at the top, but expect to anchor into the ice.

Location

This flow grows on some broken cliffs to the north and about 200 feet above Eagle Lake. To get there from Eagle Lake, you must climb a wide 35 degree snow slope. A nice boulder sits below the climb and can be used for a handy belay platform.
