Description Suggest change

Start in the northern col between Miney and Moe, following features (5.7 lichen) to a broad ledge wrapping halfway up the face. Traverse the ledge (5.0) into a prominent notch just north of the summit (5.7). The climbing in this notch/corner is the best on the route with great rock. Accessible alpine adventure and a total romp. The crux is probably the licheny bits. We simuled the route but with traditional rope systems this would break up logically into three pitches.

Location Suggest change

This climb is on the west face of Miney tower. From Elbow Lake start up into the left side drainage, pass the start of the Centennial and continue up ~1000ft of moderate snow to the base of the west face.

Descent Suggest change

We left two solid rappel anchors. One long rappel (60m) from below the summit, then a bit of scrambling to a last short rappel.
