Please respect the mining claims in this area.

Description 

This flow is the largest on the crag, running around 200 feet from top to bottom making for a full 60 meter pitch. Several WI2 steps lead to a WI3 step at the finish. The bottom and top steps are the largest. This maybe a good climb for multi-pitch practice as large pools exist above each step for ice anchors. A walkoff right down talus and scree would also enable easy laps for bouldering.

Location 

Walk 50 feet up low angle ice from the grassy flats below the crag to the base of the lowest step. Walk off right down talus.

Protection 

Climbing skill... or screws and V-threads. Dial your glove skills here. Watch for weakness on the steeper sections as this gets SE sun-hit (PG-13).
