Description 

If you've hoofed all the way into King, PF Flyer is one of the most attractive lines, spilling down the south wall of the ravine. The climbing in enjoyable, and will sport some short, steep sections even in high snow years. You can exit left more easily or go right and enjoy a thin ice/ mixed exit below a steep, triangular rock face. However, beware of a brutal spruce plunge no matter which exit you choose.

Location 

2nd ice/snow gully you see on the right when hiking in on the Short Line. If the 'shwack through the boulder field bothers you, best turn around, because the one at the top is much worse. Really it might be better to rap the route and top out one of the headwall lines/ Great Gully.

Protection 

Screws.
