The Upper Eagle Lake Ice is the best ice in the area. A 70 meter rope may barely allow for a single pitch ascent. Two obvious ice lines are possible. The climber's left side avoids the cliff and is WI3. The flow on climber's right is composed of half a dozen curtains stacked one on top of the other and separated by narrow ledges. The line splits near the top into two narrow curtains offering options to finish. Undoubtedly mixed climbers will find more options here.
Upper Eagle Lake ice is southwest of and 600 feet above Eagle Lake. The snow slopes on the approach from the lake to the base are prime avalanche terrain.
Fat ice in the early Spring. Most likely requires two pitches.
