Description

Fist fun moderate route involves a good-sized ice flow that faces due east and avoids much of the direct sunlight often keeping the ice quality High into late May. The route starts on a 40 foot tall by 50 foot wide flow before reaching a small tear then continuing up another hundred and fifty feet of sustained WI 2. Climb one last 30 foot section of ice has the flow chokes down near the top of the climb. Rappel off of Alders and VThreads.

This route is located on the west side of the canyon above the end of the meadow. Walk ski or snow machine to the end of the groom the trail then turn left to see this objective. Approach by walking uphill a few hundred yards fence scrambling up a gully with moderate Avalanche hazard. There are a couple WI 1 ice bulges in this Gully that require a passing to reach the base of the climb. Repel the route
