Rootbeer Float starts six feet right of the drainage on a smooth face. The first bolt is eight feet up the slab and has been crushed from the spring avalanche cycle yet a small bier may still fit. The third bolt (was missing a hanger) is just under a ramp. Follow well spaced hangers up more smooth slab climbing on to an anchor located 95 feet high.


After the avalanche scramble up the large scree drainage to the left of the main wall. Rootbeer Float is located just right of the small waterfall and drainage on a smooth slab face.


10 bolts, 2 bolt chain anchor

looks like most of the hangers are crushed on this right now, probably a bomb, but I didn't climb it.
