Grade: III, W5+

Route Length: 100m

Approach: The route is on an east facing cliff located on the next major ridge east of Mt. Wilson. Park a km or so east of the last BNP signs and bushwack for about 1.5hrs to the route. No trail.

Route Description: This route was first climbed in 2004 by Nordegg locals with two leaders climbing side by side, and 3 climbers following side by side! It doesn’t often form, but is worthwhile when it’s there.

A long pitch of steep ice leads to an easier top out.

Descent: Rappel the route.

Gear: Screws.

Objective Hazards: Possible avalanche danger on the slopes at the base during times of extreme hazard.
