BETA PHOTO: The Access Ramp.


The Access Ramp is a short snow ramp that can be used to skip the first three pitches of Caught Inside or to descend from the first three pitches.

It is approximately two 70m pitches with a short step at the start of the second pitch that would be the crux.


The Access Ramp is the obvious right-leaning snow ramp 150' up and to the left of the start of Caught Inside.

To descend, two 70m rappels will get you down. Two 60m rappels will work with some downclimbing on the easier snow parts. Otherwise, continue up Caught Inside to finish on the ridge and descend via the east slopes.


A normal alpine rock rack with pins and snow pickets if desired.
