Description 

This is a great 400 foot crag right above the summer tourist trail to Alberta Falls. It is generally protected from the wind, so it's a good venue for nasty days or when you are looking for a quicker day. There are a couple easier mixed routes with ice in the big gully on the left side of the wall and a couple harder traditionally protected, mixed routes on the central rock buttress (with potential for more!).

Getting There 

Park at the Glacier Gorge Trailhead, and stay on the summer tourist trail (not the usual winter shortcut after the second bridge). The cliff is obvious right above the trail after 30 or 40 minutes. The trail is generally packed out by snowshoers, but skis are still nice for drifts and on the way out.

This is the obvious, left-facing corner to the right of Alberta Falls Wall. The crux is moving past the arch (fixed pin here) and into a small, left-facing corner at about 30 feet. A no hands rest at a ledge gives some respite before another steep, short, left-facing corner. Beware of the final slab if it is covered in snow, there is potential to fall onto the ledge below.Lower off a fixed anchor, or traverse 15 feet left to join Alberta Falls Wall.
