DescriptionThis moderate climb goes up a left-facing dihedral at the top of a two hundred foot scree field.
Pitch one has a steep pillar that gains access to snow or thin ice on low angle rock.
Pitch two consists of 70 degree thin slab up to some sometimes better formed ice near the top.
Use V-threads to rap, or if ice is thin, top out and descend a gully to the right.
LocationLeft side of the Canyon 13.17 miles from the intersection at Airport Road and the Richardson Highway.
This climb is on the west side of Keystone Canyon. If in, it is one of the first pieces of ice you will encounter. Park near the base of the climb, and scramble up 200' of scree to the bottom of the route.
