This is an enjoyable climb but by no means is this a classic. This route consists of two main steps of ice which make this route a great opportunity to practice multipitch climbing or a first lead. The second step is much wider than the first and has multiple options for climbing. Most likely you will be the only party on this route but when Genesis area is busy this is a nice alternative. Keep in mind that the approach gully and gully above the climb are avalanche paths.


From the G1 wall continue right and follow the trail used to access the top of G1 for setting top ropes. Not too far past the G1 wall the TR trail will branch off left and head uphill. Do not take the TR trail (upper) and continue on lower trail about 250 yards until the trail crosses a gully. The ice is barely visible from here but as you climb higher up the gully the ice will come into view.
