It gets its name because we first bouldered this while out snowshoeing. Spotted a nice line and went for it. We didn't have our climbing shoes, but that didn't stop us. Being that there was snow it worked out really well. The snow acted as the perfect (cold) crashpad.

There are a couple of flakes, a few juggy holds and some thin fingers. There are some nice extensions as well.


Once you reach Top Summit the rock is obvious. There are two walls, east and west. There's an obvious arete (west wall) with a tree that shoots up directly above the problem. Walk off the problem either down the jagged staircase or more gradually further to the south.
