Description

One 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.

Location

Just left of the blunt arete that divides the main face, below a left-leaning, ice-filled chimney. (This is the easiest start. There is a harder, more direct start just to the left.)

Protection

Ice screws plus standard rock rack to 2".
