Comments: Mean, mean start, but the first bolt can be clipped by stemming on the boulder behind.

Comments: A bit gravelly, and considering the total lack of traffic unlikely to clean up - but I enjoyed the route. By the time I'd soloed up to the start the first bolt was at my waist.

Comments: ***WARNING***

May 24, 2017

Due to the heavy snowpack; alpine conditions currently exist on this trail - possession of an ice-axe, and familiarity with its use should be seriously considered. Crampons/spikes may also be necessary if you'll be out before dawn or after sunset.

  • AVALANCHE DANGER* Due to the heavy snowfall Winter 2016/17 this route had been subjected to avalanches. It may be this way for a while - consider this when attempting the route.
