DescriptionThis climb is located climber's right of the upper Snave couloir. There is another mixed climb immediately to the climber's left called The Snave Direct. The easiest access is to park at the summit, walk west from the parking lot on the ridge for about 200m, drop down the entrance to the Crystal Couloir, and traverse east along the big snow ledge. The approach time is about 10-20 minutes. You can see the route from Summit Lake.
P1. M2, 200 feet. There are many belay options.
P2. M2, 50 feet. Belay on the ridge.
