Description

Climb up two pitches of fun, low angle ice. It can be a great first lead for beginners. Its location next to Hung Jury can also make for a good warm-up before the objective of the day. This route is normally thick allowing for V-threads, or if you wish, walk off and down the second gully to the left.

Location

Right side of the Canyon 13.32 miles from the intersection at Airport Road and the Richardson Highway.
When entering Keystone from the south, this is one of the first climbs you will see on the East Wall. It is located next to Hung Jury. Park at pullout, and find a way across the Lowe River. It is a 5 minute approach if the river is frozen.

Protection

Ice screws, rap off V-threads or walk off two gullies to the right.
