Tucked off to the left of The Cascade. You can make out the climb as you approach from the picnic area between the lakes, but you can't see the climb from the base of The Cascade. Scramble up the gully from the start of the The Cascade and head up and right. There may be some low grade ice to over come (grade 1+) before the climbing begins in earnest. There are 3 distinct steps with rappel anchors at the top of each one. You could climb the steep stuff in one long 50m pitch. The first and third steps are steeper than the middle one.
Cascade Lakes area, approach from picnic area between lakes. You'll have to park at the west end of the upper lake and either walk down the road or across the lake conditions permitting. Route starts up and left of The Cascade. Rappel down the route.
