Description [Suggest Change]

First route in Snow Canyon. Hike to top of boulder field to start route. First pitch runs along ramp to Intersection Ledge (Start of Thousand Pints of Light) - 180 ft. Second pitch is friction slab to left of chimney - 110 ft.

Thousand Pints of Light begins at top of first pitch.

With single 60m rope, you can descend in 3 repels. From top, repel to chains about a fourth of the way up pitch 2. Next repel to chains in chimney to right (facing wall) of belay ledge at top of pitch 1. Finally repel to ground.

Location [Suggest Change]

Top of large boulder field

Protection [Suggest Change]

Medium pro. You can use bushes for pro on first pitch. Anchor is 2 pins on ledge. 4 pins on second pitch. Top has chain anchor.

First pitch is excellent and well protected, and it would be a great pitch for first trad leads/follows. Second pitch likely has lost some varnished holds over the years and even the start is a few grades harder than the first pitch. Climb past the obvious midway rappel station just left of the drainage/seam referred to as a "chimney" in the description, passing two additional antique pins.

Rappelled in 4 pitches with single 60M rope down Battle of Wills (chimney just south/below Intersection Ledge). Jun 13, 2017
