Overview

II D8 R1
While not the longest line out there, Little Blue makes up for it in the aesthetics of it. It feels way bigger than it is due to being surrounded by tall rock walls, and can be seen a mile away.

Description

The easiest way to access this line is to climb it directly, starting from Little Blue Lake. Alternatively it could be possible to climb Mt. Audubon and scramble down to the saddle, although this would be a decently tricky alpine climbing endeavor. Ski what you climbed (or drop in from above) and ski out on the Mitchell Lake Trail.
