Description

This is a really enjoyable ice climb. It requires delicate climbing on the lower part up to a steep crux that was protected by slinging a small pillar. This section could easily fatten up later in the season and it would climb like a 3+.  On the fa it felt like a 4. You could belay immediately after the crux at a sloping ledge with a screw anchor or continue to the top. The climb winds its way up a golden ribbon of ice, some places it is narrow enough that you can stem on rock. Finish by going straight up on some overhanging turf sticks for the top out - fun. Step up to a nice ledge and belay off a big spruce.

Location

This route is found in the obvious gully directly opposite the confluence of Walton Glen Brook and the LSR. Walk up the drainage about 80 meters and you should see the route on the right hand side wall. You could climb and rap the route with two ropes 50 meters or longer. It is still possible to rap the route with a singe 60 but you would have to do two raps with the second on v threads.

Protection

A rack of 10 screws including at least 3 stubbies. A few long draws.
