Description Suggest change

Climb can be broken up many ways, and many might prefer to simul sections of moderate terrain.

P1. Ascend a couple short steps of easy ice or mixed that finish at a tree with slings (WI3, ~100').

A short stretch of snow leads to the obvious second pitch.

P2. Continue up a long pitch of usually thin ice. Belay at fixed rock gear in the left wall (WI4, ~175').

P3/4. Climb 300-400' of snow and short easy ice or mixed steps. This leads to the upper gully.

P5. Continue up low-angle but usually thin ice leading up the start of the upper gully. Belay at fixed pin on the right (WI3/4, ~160')

P6. The gully gets a little steeper, and the ice is still usually thin. Belay at a nest of fixed rock gear in the left wall (WI3/4, ~200).

P7. This is the steepest and best part of the upper gully. Belay off screws or continue up snow to a tree with slings (WI4, ~180').

Location Suggest change

This is left of Gravity's Rainbow. The gully starts right off the road.

Protection Suggest change

A selection of screws short - medium and a few pins.
