Travis Mcalpine getting after it on Glass Onion.


Climb to the base of Simple Twist and access the route by means of a right leaning shelf. Once on the ice climb straight up this beautiful formation and continue to the top of the canyon wall for an unforgettable day.


Glass Onion it the ice formation located on top of the canyon wall between Bridalveil and Greensteps.


Protect with ice screws and slinging alders. Descend by topping out and hike lookers right to the normal walk off gully used by other routes that are located in the area.
