Description [Suggest Change]

This 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.

Location [Suggest Change]

Start about 150 feet right of Tastee Freeze below an obvious, left-facing dihedral.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Standard rock rack.
