Another spectacular South Fork pillar! Unfortunately it doesn't always form, but you should be able see it from the parking area across the valley. Hard to say where the crux will be, but count on some difficult climbing near the top.


The route is located far above High On Boulder, which must be climbed first. Continue up the HOB drainage, climbing some short ice steps along the way. You can't see the route until you get pretty close. Exit the drainage to the right and make your way to the base. Rappel from a slung tree. If you are looking for a big day, you can also tick off the Pillar of Pain, which is about 150m to the left


Screws for pro, to a slung tree at the top.
