Third pitch.


Start with a short step of WI2 that gains a bowl of snow and plenty of belay options. The crux pitch is WI3 M3-4 and is protected with a Lost Arrow. The next pitch goes under a chockstone to gain a couple hundred feet of easy mixed terrain to the top of the buttress and trail.


This is the first route you encounter while descending towards Snorkmaiden and Mini Micro in a obvious gully/couloir. Walk out to the Chicago Basin overlook from Summit Lake and descend down into the valley trending West. The approach time 20-40 minutes.


Alpine rack, 3-4 ice screws. Knife blades and Lost Arrows are key.
