Description [Edit]

Crystal Vision can not be seen from the road because it is hidden around the first bend in the canyon. The walls are vary narrow here and create deep pools that may require a good snap of cold weather or latter season conditions to make for easier access. This is a spectacularly steep route of hanging chandeliers or near vertical ice. In fat conditions steps may help ease off the sustained steepness yet it is a stout route ether way.

Protection [Edit]

Protect this route with ice screws and rappel with V Threads and alders or walk off to the left.
