Classic WI 4 or 5 depending on conditions and route of travel. In heavy snow years, this can become choked with snow with high avy danger. Fortunately the route can be easily seen from a pull-out on Hwy 550.

3 out of 5 stars Wet and Fun

First pitch was dripping but real plastic ice so fairly easy. The rest of the climb wasn't as wet but still plastic ice and not as steep. Lots of fun.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent climb

3 long pitches, only the 1st is in the 4 range. Easier on the left side. Middle groove was 4+, right side may be a 5. There was a sling anchor at the top of the 1st pitch this year.
