Good mixed route, approximately 5 pitches, but much can be simul-climbed if you're comfortable with it. Hardest climbing is near top where water ice pours off an overhang. Steep and exposed. Good rock gear before committing to pulling it though.

4 out of 5 stars Fun Climb

This is a good alpine climb in the spring/summer. The rock is loose and chossy, which is kinda standard fare for the cascades.

5 out of 5 stars Very fun

Rock is shitty....EVERYTHING is loose....stick your tool in a crack and torque it before trusting gear in any crack

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

This is a great route. There are two starts the line to the left is more difficult and is over 60 meters to a good belay at some trees. Also the rapells off of the east side are a little over 30 meters.
