Description

A perfect introduction to steep snow and easy mixed climbing. As soon as the trailhead opens this thing is usually in condition. Many climbers go fast and light using very little gear; However it can also be done as a fully protected climb using some rock gear, pickets and screws. With amazing views of the Stuart Range, this thing should qualify for any climbers tick list.

Location

From the far side of Colchuck Lake, hike uphill and gain the Moraine. Follow the Moraine to the right and eventually drop into the large couloir.

Descent via the backside and then down Colchuck Glacier.

Protection

rock gear, pickets and screws
