Description Suggest change

Approach: 2 minutes
Climb: 1 - 2 pitches
Descent: 1 or 2 raps
Sun: Lots

The excellent big curtain of ice right across the creek from the "road" while driving into THOS, Valley of the Birds, etc... Don't drive across the creek as it's illegal now due to protected spawning grounds. CO's do check this area often to enforce and ticket anyone driving across the creek.

Location Suggest change

From the bottom of the Big Hill, head into the North Ghost and you'll drive right past this super obvious climb on your right (east). Park on the road side of the river, put your crampons on for some height, and cross the river just upstream from the route where it's shallow.

Many lines are optional from moderate WI4 to overhanging curtains and freestanding pillars of WI5+.
