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

This route is easiest to describe from how it is ascended to come down. When looking at the ridge from the ravine floor, start at the large rock formation on your right known as Lunch Rocks. Keep to the left of lunch rocks. There will be a wye above Lunch Rocks. The Sluice goes to the left side as you're hiking up. Follow the obvious line to the top, then ski it back down.
