This short route consistently freezes up and often makes for good bouldering due to the nice snowy landing and because if can form quite wide along the base of the climb. Start up the thicker section of this formation for 30' before the ice thins into a smear with a few moves left to the top. A couple moss picks and hooking alders will bring you to the top of the road cut and many thick alders to rappel off of or walk off on the left side of the cliff.


This route is located on the north end of the road cut that makes the Bridalvail Parking Lot.


Ice Screws, sling alders for an anchor
