P1. Climb past the ice blobs and up into the corner where the crack becomes an off width. Pull over this and continue up east ground to a fixed anchor on the left. 5.8/M4 65M

P2. This pitch doesn't form as regularly as the others. If the ice looks good then climb it. If not you can bypass it to the right via some easy but poorly protected rock/dirt. WI5/ 5.5R 30M

P3. climb some steep ice then walk up some easy snow to the next pitch WI5- 15M

P4. More ice. WI5 15M


This route is visible from the grotto falls parking lot, look for ice in the chossy cliffs above G2. To get there follow the G2 approach, either climb G2 or bypass it to the left. Continue up the drainage until you reach the base of the cliffs. Look for a couple ice blobs at the base of a corner.


Rock pro up to a number 3 Camelot. 6 or so ice screws, bring some stubbies. Maybe a spectre. Bring webbing or cord. Two ropes are needed to rap
