BETA PHOTO: Mt. Stephen buttress, Twisted (all ice) is on the ...


For years a thin ice and mixed route, Twisted has been coming in more as an ice route in recent years. The relatively short approach and great climbing make Twisted a popular objective. There is avalanche hazard on the approach and from above so check conditions.


Twisted is the left-most route on Mt. Stephen, and located on a prominent buttress easily visible on the left when coming down the hill into Field. Park in the lot at the bottom of the hill. Follow the trail to the highway, cross the bridge and head up to the tracks. Cross the tracks (don't touch the avalanche warning wires), and head up the slope, and then traverse to the base of the route.


Bring a standard mixed rack when it comes in thin, screws when it's fat. Descend from v-threads.
