Description:

This is the big, obvious and northernmost ice climb. The approach takes you through some alders and across the power line to a long snow field. The snow cone splits into two branches after about 45 minutes of climbing. Take the right branch for Porcupine. The first pitch is about 100 feet of moderate ice with a 20 foot pillar. Then move up and left on 100 feet of snow to the base of the crux pitch. Thin ice on 70 degree slabs, poor pro, and then the crux pillar above. To descend, move right and head down a series of ledges and gullies.
