Climb up a less than vertical peace of ice to a ramp and finish on a steep pillar that leads to the top of the route.


This ice climb can be seen from the road located high up above the old road tunnel (not the railway tunnel). Park at the pull out and hike up hill a few hundred feet to the base of the route.


Protect with ice screws, rap off pine trees, alders or V threads.

A grade III leader will have their hands full on this one unless it's pick sucking ice. Steep and narrow. A slog to get to if a normal snow year.
