Overview

One of the "easier" ski lines in the park, it sees a fair amount of traffic.

Need to Know

Like all lines in the park, it's big, it's alpine, it's a long approach, and it's serious.

Description

Approach via the Garnet Canyon Skinner, veer left up the southfork at the meadows. Turn up the ridge of the Middle once you reach the Middle/South saddle, and follow the obvious line up. It gets a bit tight at the top! Be sure to take time to enjoy the view, one of the best in the park!
