DescriptionMany, many steps of WI2-3 up the west drainage (bear right) of Avalanche Canyon places you at the base of a WI4 pillar/curtain. Atop the pillar, head climbers right on a steep forested slope to the final 200' WI4 headwall. The final headwall can be done in one or two pitches. Probably best done as one, but it is LONG.
THIS IS A MAJOR AVALANCHE PATH. CHECK CONDITIONS BEFORE CLIMBING OR APPROACHING.
LocationOnce across the creek, however you got there, the trail heads up Avalanche Canyon from behind a concrete structure. The first pitch starts up a WI3 section with an amphitheater (w/ graffiti) on the left.
Descend from slings on trees and walk down/around some sections through the trees.
