Description

It was named after Martha Bengen, the previous director of ski patrol at the ski area. In order to qualify for pro patrol, you had to be able to keep up with Martha up "Martha's Ladder". It was more of an entrance exam than anything.

Sometimes a windlip forms near that top that can be shaped into a jump to a steep landing. Some people call this the "White Monkey Jump".

This route can be challenging after melt-freeze conditions or on busy weekends as several skin and snowshoe tracks will end up all over the face and are usually in poor condition.
