Multiple, casual lines through open glades on slopes less than 30 degrees.

Description

Enter the glades at any of the multiple breaks in the trees to the southeast of the Mainline Approach. The open slopes southwest of the weather tower hide nasty rocks just under the surface in early season and low snow years... The grade steepens sharply just below the 11,480' and has fractured and slid in years past.
