DescriptionRain Check is a good choice for climbing in the Valdez area when avalanche conditions are high, as the route ends atop the canyon with no major snow slopes above.
A moderate "approach" pitch past a short but steep step and a long snowy ramp leads to the base of the long crux pitch. Belay from screws. Many paths can be taken through the crux P2 pillar depending on conditions, ~45M long. Belay from healthy trees atop P2.
