Pitch 1
Slippery When Wet climbs up smooth, waterslideish rock on the left side of the wall. The first clip is 20' off the deck. Continue up well spaced bolts (15' apart) on glacier polished rock to complete the first eighty foot pitch.

Pitch 2
After crossing a shelf with some alders you continue up a steeper ,second face of solid, smooth rock. Climb on rounded holds and small ledges for some very enjoyable moves with a spectacular view. Follow the bolts up this crux pitch to a two bolt anchor and do a double rap to get back to the ground.


Slippery When Wet is located on the two tear rock outcropping encountered shortly after the approach avalanche. Scramble up a scree slope toward a small waterfall gully then traverse right to the wall. This area is a few hundred yards down valley from the main Byron Glacier Wall.


P1 6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor
P2 8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

There are a few key gear placements. Stay right of the bolt line at the first pitch crux rather than a sneak around to the left.
