Description [Suggest Change]

Climb up a less than vertical peace of ice to a ramp and finish on a steep pillar that leads to the top of the route.

Location [Suggest Change]

This ice climb can be seen from the road located high up above the old road tunnel (not the railway tunnel). Park at the pull out and hike up hill a few hundred feet to the base of the route.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Protect with ice screws, rap off pine trees, alders or V threads.

A grade III leader will have their hands full on this one unless it's pick sucking ice. Steep and narrow. A slog to get to if a normal snow year. Nov 8, 2015
