This overhanging cliff creates on of the hardest routes in the area when conditions allow the thin pillars of ice to touch down or even get close to doing so. The first pitch is a less committing lead. The upper half is one to be proud of. The first accent was done in incredibly thin conditions (2" pillar thin) in sections and has seen few repeats.


Left side of the Canyon 13.77 miles from the intersection at Airport Road and the Richardson Highway. Park at the Bridalveil parking lot and walk along the ditch south bound for a couple rope length before following a switch back then follow the Wagon Road Trail for a for a hundred feet or so. The climb is located just above the trail.


Ice screws, sling alders, alder anchor.
