East Channel, looking south

Description 

2 miles of shoreline, lines all along it and ranging from 20-90 feet in height. Some TR-able (see "Location" section).


Location 

On Grand Island, along the East Channel (across from Sand Point on the mainland).

See Grand Island's "Getting There" section.

Re: TR-ing, heard much of the island isn't TR friendly, but we were able to. We scoped the ice from the mainland, approached from the west, got up top before it got steep, followed xc-ski tracks along the top until we figured we were in the right place.

Protection 

Slings or ice screws.
