|Whiteman Falls Ice/Mixed
This is the main waterfall in the drainage that bears its name. Very good option when avalanche danger is high. Two pitches of varied ice depending on conditions. Could go as easy as WI4 and as hard as 6. Pitch one is usually mushroomed and varied. Belay on the left from ledges or on the right in a cave from a bolted anchor. Second pitch climbs the upper pillar to bolted anchor on the right. Double 70M ropes will allow a single rap to the ground if the snow cone is somewhat built up, otherwise two raps will be needed.
Can't miss it if you're in the right area.
Screws. Bolted Belays.
