Start of the climb and the first chockstone.

Description 

The crux of the climb is highly dependent on when you climb the route. If you're climbing in early spring/late winter, there are two somewhat difficult sections where you must climb over large chockstone boulders in crampons. It is sketchy to cross and hard to protect. In late spring, the crux is the first chockstone.


Location 

Drive up the toll road and park near Glen Cove. Hike to base of Three Little Pigs (Flying W) couloir system. This is the obvious couloir system which creates a W shape when all three couloirs are formed. The W is on the climber's left of Little Italy. This climb is the farthest right couloir.


Protection 

Snow anchors (pickets, flukes), small to medium nuts, and small to medium cams.
