DescriptionOne of the best climbs of its grade in the park with varied terrain up an impressive wall; a real backcountry gem.
P1 WI3: Climb the left-leaning chimney to a sloped ledge. Traverse left to a tree below a right-facing corner. On sunny days, be especially aware of falling ice from the face above...it funnels down this chimney. 200'
P2 WI5: Go up the strenuous, vertical ice hose in the right-facing corner to its top. (There's rock gear available on both walls of the corner.) Enter a hidden chimney and squirm up to its top. Exit the chimney via the an ice overhang, then climb easier ice to the trees. 200'
Descent: Rappel to route from trees.
