Again, if you follow the glisade line from the base camp, you cant miss which opening to take when you reach the Red Banks.

From the Helen Lake base camp you shoot straight up the center following the glisade line. If you traverse right or left of the glisade line, you are off route.

Comments: Fun route. If you've never climbed a route with exposure then sure you might be a little nervous making the "move" on lead and finishing the rest of the second pitch. Since I was the "guide" and had to manage 3 ropes and three followers on the climb the most entertaining part of the climb was running into "Ben" the local soloist and hearing him talk about soloing. Let me tell you, good times. Not sure if it was the wind or what but his hair looked like he had stuck his finger in a light sock... more >>
