There is a mixed band of terrain between the two avenues of approach. The left of the two couloirs (just to the left of Lightning Couloir) is a bit safer to descend than Lightning, and it broadens out sooner, opening up to Big Butch Wash.


Head up to Mt.Baldy village towards Manker flats where the road splits.Big butch wash off is to the right.Park in the Manker Flats area.Hike up to Big Butch towards the couloirs.When you come to the junction with the small waterfall on the left side, simply head up the obvious couloir system to the right in front of you.

Low snowpack at the top of the route made for a very interesting solo. Lots of exposed ground/rock forced me to frontpoint and even drytool when I was able to find features stable enough to pull on. The lower 3/4 of the route was extremely fun though, good snow until the final 50ft or so. Going to wait for a bit more snow before I attempt to repeat the route. Definitely an "X" safety rating in these conditions, it did look like there were possibilities to protect however in the rock on the sides of the couloir. No rockfall luckily. Jan 14, 2013

The place is a bowling alley in march! There were some decent sections of neve and some ice down low, but mostly easy snow. The crux was dodging rocks. Mar 12, 2011
