Need to Know

The Delta wind can polish your teeth. Check windy.com for conditions.

Description

Park 1.5 miles north of One Mile Creek. Brave the river gravel as you cross the Delta River. Stay on the drifts to the south as you go up the creek.

When you come to the first glacier toe, take the creek up to the left (south). This can be good riding also. Cross the valley back east along the toe of the upper glacier until the south seam. Climb the ridge separating the two bowls.

Note one small crux at the hourglass near the top. Ride from the top, or from below the hourglass depending on the snow conditions.
