This incredible route consists of a very large flow located 400 feet to the right of wowie zowie. It has a little bit of everything with mellow pitches, Steve Ice, steep snow and amazing views.
Pitch 1- Climb 170 feet of fat blue ice on the left side of the flow then continue up to and Alder anchor.
Pitch 2. Follow a snow ramp up and right past a bulge of ice and punch straight up to the base of the Crux pitch.
Pitch 3. Prepare for one of the best pitches of WI4 Valdez has to offer. It is fat, solid, and sustained for 100 feet before backing off a little bit so you can catch your breath.
