Description

This route climbs up a feature on the left side of the obvious snow gully. The gully it's self offers early season ice scrambling for many hundreds of feet after a few cold snaps and before snow buries most of the low angle ice. FA conditions reviled 150' of WI2 with the top portion being split by a bulge of rock. Rappel off v threads. The name derives from a historical cabin in Talkeetna. (Ref Blue Ice Black Gold, Andy Embick)

Location

Right side of the Canyon 13.22 miles from the intersection at Airport Road and the Richardson Highway.
This route is located across the river on the left side of an obvious snow gully.

Protection

Ice screws, V threads.
