Approach: Park in the lot where the Yoho Valley (Takkakaw Falls) Road is closed. The route is visible just up and left from here. Hike up the open slopes to the route.

Route Description: Climb the nice curtain of ice in 1 long or 2 shorter pitches. Another climb just to the left is known as Silk Tassle (WI4).

Descent: Rappel off a tree with webbing at the top of the climb (takes 2 60m ropes).

Objective Hazards: Beware of avalanche hazard from above as well as on the approach slopes.
