DescriptionThis climb is well-protected from the wind and makes for a nice, quick outing.
1) Climb up to the dihedral, then up the dihedral, belaying on the left just after it ends at a well-protected stance with good gear.
2) Step right and climb up the depression until it steepens up a bit after 130 feet or so. A belay can be arranged here.
3) Climb over the steep bit, head right a little bit, then head up towards a chimney below a large dead tree. Follow this chimney to the dead tree and the top of the buttress.
A nice descent is to head down the ridge towards the Dream Lake Chutes and then follow them down to Dream Lake.
