This route lies just off of Cabin Creek proper. Park in the high parking lot, and start hiking, trending east as you go. You will cross a creek in about fifteen minutes, either follow this creek bed or hike along the side. When it starts to constrict, get in the drainage, hike about another thirty minutes to the approach pitches. The first pitch can either be a chimney climb, sparsely protected, or a full on curtain stretching across the face. It rarely forms very thick at the top. Climb about ten meters to top out. Belay from a clump of trees on the left. There have been talks of bolting a line on the right, but it has not been done yet. Hike up around the corner to the second pitch, a really fun, slabby, full pitch of ice. Belay from screws. The third pitch is the money maker, a ways up from the second. Count of a half hour hike over ice, rock and debris to get there. Usually it ramps out on the right, offering thin, but with a reach, protectable climbing. The hardman line is on the left, and the moderate line is in the middle. The third pitch is close to 60 meters. Belay from screws.

Descent Options:

Rappel the route from v-threads and trees.
