Need to Know

This is extreme terrain with extreme weather. You MUST bring warm clothes, food, and water. This is a steep hike to the top and requires plenty of time. Avalanches are a threat in this area.

Description

Start at the skier's left edge of the rock band that makes up the feature Icefall runs through. A thin line should be visible down to the ravine floor. The Lip is between 40 and 50 degrees. A good route finder will ski this with ease, generally avoiding rocks and ledges. Ascend up the route prior to skiing it for the best understanding of where to go.
