Description

This is a fun climb in an excellent setting.

When we climbed this in late September 2010 the bottom half of the couloir consisted of nice neve, and the top half consisted of 4 pitches of beautiful plastic ice.

We soloed up the neve and started properly belaying where the ice began. The ice gets progressively steeper until the top of the couloir. After topping out turn left and climb 70' of class 3 to the summit. Enjoy the spectacular view!

Location

From the Royce Lakes climb up the north side of Feather Peak to the obvious couloir.

Protection

Ice screws, and a handful of cams and nuts. Rock pro for anchors on the sides of the couloir was readily available.

Enjoyable ski run with awesome views. Fun terrain to play in after you ride the chute along the CoCoLa. Mar 24, 2011
