Description

This is the obvious, left-facing corner to the right of Alberta Falls Wall. The crux is moving past the arch (fixed pin here) and into a small, left-facing corner at about 30 feet. A no hands rest at a ledge gives some respite before another steep, short, left-facing corner. Beware of the final slab if it is covered in snow, there is potential to fall onto the ledge below.

Lower off a fixed anchor, or traverse 15 feet left to join Alberta Falls Wall. It is one of the harder traditionally protected mixed routes in the Park, and it would be an impressive onsight. I led the route in true winter conditions but only after fixing a pin and sussing out the route a few times on toprope.

Location

This ascends an obvious series of steep, left-facing corners on the left side of the crag. Start off the right side of a small ledge.

Protection

2 x C3s, and 1.5 x #0.4 C4 to #2 C4.
