The Wetter The Better is a route located on the second tear of this rock formation. Start form the anchor of Slippery When Wet and head right. Climb a smooth face of rock to gain a sloping, left trending ledge. Follow this up the dihedral to a sheared anchor with the route on left. Descend with two rappels.


The Wetter The Better is located on the second tear of a 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. You can traverse along the ledge form the left or climb the first pitch of Slippery When Wet to axcess this route.


8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor
