Description 

The Genesis area is deservedly popular with relatively short approaches, reliable ice, and a wide selection of difficulties, including many moderates.

Getting There 

From the Hyalite Creek/Peak aka Grotto Falls Trailhead parking lot, walk back east and cross the road. A roughly 10-15 minute hike on a well-traveled trail brings you to the base of the Genesis I wall. Most of the routes will be described from here.
