Need to Know

This route requires rappelling down an 80'+ cliff.

Description

This is the middle line on the geologic feature known as The Pyramid: the eastern point on Fairview Mountain's west-east running ridge. A rappel requiring advanced climbing knowledge and experience is the apex of this line. Drop in from the top of the What's Mine Ascent and carefully make your way along the treeline as you approach the cliff in the middle of the slope. Find an anchor and set up your rappel, which descends a narrow gash in the cliff band.

Once down below the cliff, the fun isn't over yet; there's a broad slope leading to another cliff band with a few skiable chutes between the rocks. Find the one you like and drop in, make a few turns on the lower apron into a basin contained by an ancient glacial moraine deposit.
