Description [Suggest Change]
Similar for the majority of the route to the steepness of Snow Lion, it adds further dimensions by way higher fall consequences and a final 10-20' crux of near vertical to overhanging snow. The summit cornice melts out to the possible by late June. Start early as the crux receives sun the soonest of all routes on Jasper's east face.
Location [Suggest Change]
It is centered directly between Snow Lion and Gaiteraid on Jasper's East face. Descend via Gaiteraid or seek out easier routes further East on Jasper's East ridge. Approach via Diamond Lake trail.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Rock pro in the walls of the couloir, pickets. Best option is not falling.
