Description:

Fantastic climb. In my opinion is the best one in the valley. First pitch is long...215 ft. You'll need to simul climb the last 15 ft (if using 60m rope) for reach the fixed anchor. The 1st pitch is WI4 on the left and WI5 on the right by late season. Early on its all WI5. The second pitch is usually choked with snow from avalanches, but there could be a short WI3 pitch in a ligh snow year. Hike up to the right and you'll come to the last pitch. A great 100ft pitch with a fixed anchor up to the left on top. Great climb.

First pitch was great. Soloed the second, snow climing. My partner was halfway up the 3rd when it sheered off. We very luckily walked away scared. Maybe we'll finish it someday.
