Description 

Tokyo Express is located about 45 minutes up Sheep Creek Canyon. The climb shares the same 50m pitch as Tsuri Gane up a shallow groove. It than angles left through mellow ice and snow to the base of a pillar. Pitch three is the crux consisting of a vertical pillar that then continues on to one or two more pitches and ends at the canyon rim. Walk left to an avalanche chute and descend back to the valley floor.

Protection 

Tokyo Express is protected by ice screws and maybe mixed trad on the first pitch. Descend by cutting left at the top of the climb and walking down an avalanche chute.
