Description:

This is the standard rappel route-on the West Face- for all routs on that end on the South Summit of Snowpatch Spire. All stations have bolts and chains, placed in the summer of 2000. The route it self is worth while but is often wet in sections and slow to dry.

5 out of 5 stars Kraus-McCarthy

Super fun route, didn't have a topo, but the route seemed obvious with a few possible minor variations. A great way to tag this summit fast. Climbed in the afternoon so there were two parties rappelling the route but didn't really cause us any problems.
