Description

This line offers the most varied terrain of the Fingers. The descent begins on a sub-ridge below the South Peace Chute and continues through a narrow slide path that widens before dropping out on a series of glacial moraine rock benches above the Williams Lake Trail. Keep your sights set on the terrain changes ahead for this ride.
