Description

This is the obvious ice line in the big gully feature on the left side of the Alberta Falls Wall. It's easy to spot from the tourist trail.

Some well-protected, moderate, mixed climbing up slightly left-leaning cracks, with an annoying bush or two, leads to the 30 foot blob of ice. There is a fixed pin just before the ice. Rap easily off a tree.

It is a very nice moderate pitch if you're tired of Loch Vale, and it's too stormy for something bigger. There is also an even easier variant of this route, just to the left.

The exact location of this climb may be hard to discern depending on the amount of snow. Use caution when rappelling with a 60m rope as it may be too short. A 70m rope was barely long enough when we rappelled. 

Location

This is in the big gully on left side of Alberta Falls Wall.

Protection

Light rock rack and maybe one or two screws.
