Description

Awesome line up a hidden gulley. An easy 50 degree snow ramp leads to a cleft of rock. A few moves on rock will lead to a narrow ribbon of ice. The crux will be WI4+ in early season. Later in the season ice will build over a log near the top forming a roof. The roof was there on the first ascent making for a very exciting finish.

Location

This route is found downstream of The Eye of The Needle. Best accessed by crossing the brook across from The Blue Wall. Walk downstream for about 50 meters then look up and left for a snowfield. Follow the snowfield to the gully. You can safely rapell the route with a 70 meter rope or double ropes. Some down climbing will be required if you have a single 60.

Protection

A rack of screws. Tree anchor.
