Description

The Little Ravine is a series of three short ice-steps. The first, and most interesting step, is a short, thin pillar perched atop a wider ramp. About 50 feet further up the drainage lies a broad, low-angle section of ice that is probably climbable with one tool. Another fifty-or-so feet up the drainage lies a steeper ice-wall, that, while short, will require two tools to surmount. It is a fun little diversion that could be described as a smaller, but slightly steeper (at its steepest) version of Hully Gully in Orient Bay.

Location

Along the tracks, just south of the major drainage containing The Relien Ravine, and just north of Le Petit Chemin de Fer Pilier. The first step can be seen easily from the tracks.
