Description

Follow the bottom of "The Fingers" Approach and then continue straight up. This approach tends to get wind-scraped on the upper section (above the tree line), so you can't always skin your way up to the top. In the spring of the 2014/2015 season, we received large wet snow deposits that have provided great cover for this upper section so that you can skin all the way to the top and ski all the way back down. It's not difficult skiing, but it is a nice long line and worth the approach if there is good enough coverage.
