Great and long route. Initial WI4 ice leads to chandeliered ice ledges and curtains with the route's technical crux. The crux is followed by 80ft of pumpy WI5 climbing to the ledge with belay (v-threads, ice screws). From here, second pitch of WI4 leads to the top.


Northwest face of Mt. McRae.


Ice screws, rock gear is useful in thin conditions (c3's, small to medium nuts). Cords for v-threads at the belay. Double 60m ropes needed for the comfortable lead of the first pitch.
