A short steep line leading directly back to car access on Route 6.

Need to Know

This is generally considered a spring route. Beware of cornice buildup, especially in the winter months. Exposed rock on the face and small cliffs pose hazards. Thoroughly scope the line from the Route 6 hairpin below prior to descent. This is avalanche terrain. Bring the proper equipment, know the forecast, and ski with a partner.

Description

This line is most easily accessed from the Mount Sniktau Ascent. Starting at the Loveland Pass parking area and facing Loveland Ski Area, go right to start the brief ascent up the ridge toward Mount Sniktau. The ridge drifts left then wraps back around right. This forms a small bowl-shaped face on the right. Schockleys Line is in the first small bowl. The second small bowl directly below the first false summit is the Overlook Line.

Schockleys has multiple descent options, but the best is a line straight down the face, weaving between some cliffs, and pointed back towards the hairpin turn on Route 6. The skiing is brief, but so is the approach. It's a nice quick line.

To get back to your car, hitch hike from the hairpin back to the top of the pass.
