Comments: Call me a wuss but I would rate the 2nd pitch as solid 5.11. Also, for first timers, bring 2 ropes for getting down. We didn't and we had to do a bunch of shenanigans to get down.

Comments: To the left of the orange wall is a very obvious dihedral crack that ends in an offwidth. I cleaned and bolted anchors at the top in 2012. Its called eye candy and goes at 5.9. It starts on a dirty slab below a small tree but cleans up considerably after about 10 feet.

Comments: Thanks for the very helpful picture of the location of these bolts, Matt! Turns out they are located on the climber's left side about 40 or so feet down from where the ice began (we rapped down to these bolts off of a v-thread). The bolts are just above the headwall.

Comments: This climb faces south but gets afternoon shade. Also I rated it [four] stars because of the overall experience. Cool views' great climbing' a good full day outing. Also this climb had more interesting technical climbing than many other routes nearby (such as those found in Cataract and farther down the road towards Sherman).

Comments: I have heard that it is possible to scout this climb from the highway on the other side of the canyon. Any ideas on how/where to do this?

Comments: This climb now has rap bolts at the top (not visable from the base) and I spent a lot of time cleaning it (wear a helmet anyways). You're welcome!

Comments: These routes are almost impossible to get to at high tide as they must be approached from above (bushwack).

Comments: This route is super fun but could use some cleaning. Wear a helmet and consider breaking it into two pitches to mitigate rope drag.

Comments: the route goes right past the obvious isolated tree in the middle of the cliffband next to the shallow dihedral (the dihedral without all the moss in the center of the photo)

Comments: In my opinion, unless you have big bros and know how to use them, this route should be R rated. This should not dissuade anyone from doing the tower however. While it is very run out most of it is in chimmneys and the problem is not that you will fall out it is that you will get stuck. The second pitch has little pro (couldnt place a big bro). Great tower and not as hard/scary as its made out to be.

Comments: I did this climb all the way to the summit of the ridge in 2009. Good first pitch and then lots of snow sloggin' with WI3 steps mixed in. Not much beyond the 1st pitch in terms of hard ice. A fun couloir climb nonetheless.

Comments: The chimmney is by no means R rated. You can get a SOLID piece about every 6-8 feet. the longest runout was about 15' on very easy terrain. You dont need big gear either. Great route.

Comments: I have approached this area in the winter from the west and I think that might be the safer bet as far as avalanche danger and distance goes. You start at the Monarch Lake TH (usually the road is plowed to about 1.5 miles of the actual TH). Ski up the Cascade Falls trail. Near Lone Eagle Peak there is the fork to Mirror Lake (the lake at the base of Lone Eagle). Triangle Lake (mentioned in the original approach info) is just upvalley to the southeast from Mirror Lake.

Comments: This climb is real good. It is hard to see from the trail however. It is on the third or fourth gully on the right once you finish the switchbacks on the trail. Look for a small WI1 or 2 stream that goes from lookers left of the gully and then disappears into the gully. This is the flow that feeds the climb.
