Description Suggest change

P1: Climb a step to another step and belay in Huge cave WI 3 60m
P2: Up lage wall WI 3+ to another small step and ice ends at large block (55m)
P3: Walk up and climb one last 20m step of 2+.
Decent: rap off tree, then threads.

Longish approach. P2 is the only full-length pitch of climbing. We used two 60m ropes for the rappels.

Location Suggest change

Approach takes about 1.5-2 hrs. Start from Cougar Creek parking area, walk up to a Y junction (45-60 mins walking), take a left at the junction and continue up the creek until the hoodoos on the left side (high on the bank), which took an additional 15 minutes. From there, walk up a drainage on the left side of the creek bed until you hit ice (another 20 mins).
