Description

This is a reliable ice climb, albeit with a long approach. Difficulty ranges from WI2-4, depending on your line. Some of the approach options cross through serious avalanche terrain, and the route itself is in an avalanche path. Additionally, a shelf on the route about 2/3-3/4 of the way up is prone to avalanche.

Location

Above the main, lower Williwaw lake.

Protection

Screws, abalakovs, pins if early season and route is thin.

Great climb. Always seem to be a ton of onion skins, particularly the top pitch. It's a long walk so start early or prepare to camp out there. Moose can often be herd banging heads while climbing.... Jan 13, 2018
