Description 

Several ice routes are here, including the well-known Lundy Falls. Probably best climbed in November, when snow and cold temperatures have helped ice formation but the trailhead is still accessible by car/truck and the hike can be done without skis or snowshoes. Later in the season expect the approach to be 2.5 to 3 miles longer.

Getting There 

From the trailhead follow the summer trail into the canyon about 1.75 miles. Just after crossing a talus slope at the bottom of a gully (the descent gully) the trail switchbacks uphill to the south. Lundy Falls starts to climber's right. Access the other routes by climbing Lundy Falls or hiking up the descent gully. Be aware that this gully is avalanche terrain.

Also known as "Three Wise Men". A fun backcountry romp. Be aware that there is a high volume of water underneath/behind this route, climb carefully. Later in the season access can be more problematic and the route could catch a lot of snow in a big storm.After getting into the gully follow it up for a couple hundred feet. This could be easy snow, low angle ice, or a combination of the two. Wherever it looks best turn right and climb the steeper ice for a few pitches....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
