Description

An easy ice gully climb that reaches the top of the cliff.
The route can be split up in two pitches that matches the rappelling points.
Most of the route could be considered WI2-3 thanks to a steep vertical ending at about WI3.

Variations
-After the first section, 5m on the right of the gully, a couple vertical pillars at about WI3+.
-At the last vertical wall, you can bypass it by following a ledge/runnel on your right, (don't forget your second!)

Location

Follow the instructions to Lac Sylvère.

Park on the north side of the road near the sugar shack drive.
Hike up the drive and take the climbers trail on your left before reaching the shack.
At the fork in the trail with a sign, take a left towards Baltique.

The trail continues right up to the base of Baltique.
From there, follow a trail on the left down a short clearing and up the gully.

Avoid taking the old climber's trail, it crosses through the maple grove and is actually steeper than the new ones.
Route Start 46.35970,-74.05988
