Description

The extra large, south facing boulder in the Grands avalanche track, near the toe of the Tepee Glacier has a vertical face for climbing.

Originally a 50 m rappel for clients in bad weather or as a way to descend from camp when shut down above, this face eventually got top roped and led.

Now there are 2 additional pitches on this south face right of the original route. 5.11c and 5.12a both have thin slabby technical crimping and can be climbed with mostly QD’s

Location

Big Guy in avalanche west of The Watchtower. See photo below.

Protection

1 set small and QD’s or 50 m of top rope
