Description

Follow the bolts on the SW arete for four pitches (max 100'). Beautiful climbing on clean quartzite! Climb the S face on gear to make a great day.

Protection

Fixed stations and entirely bolt protected. Bring 12-14 qd's. Rap with a single rope (you may need to clip the rappel rope back in on the 3rd rappel).

This route is heaps of fun and safely bolted! The exposure and quality of moves and rock is truly awesome. Aug 13, 2015

Amazing route. Really one of the best sport multi-pitches around. Aug 1, 2016

What makes for the "Alpine" label here? I climb multipitch stuff on gear regularly but don't do ice/snow. Are there particular Alpine climbing skills that you need to climb this thing? May 16, 2018

Kevin, it's alpine label is because it is most definitely in the alpine. As for other skills, it depends on conditions. You do cross a pass to get to the route, and traverse some larger slopes. If everything is dry, it's going to feel cruiser. If there is firm snow on the approach, it may feel a lot different... May 16, 2018
Does anyone know if you can climb it in the winter? Too snowy? Nov 12, 2018

Hi Erik

I was just reading a trip report of a guy who climbed it in August. It reminded me of your question. Even then it seemed pretty cold...
