A classic route with moderate
difficulties.The access is easier and
shorter than the neighbouring routes
on the upper tier.
Start at the top end of the Cirque Creek
basin. Reach the waterfall pitches via
easy snow slopes, avoid tricky ice
covered rock slabs. Climb the waterfall
and follow a hidden gully to its end.
First 75° ice then 50° snow.
Climb the crux in 3 steep pitches (ice
up to 80°). Vertical snow can make
moves difficult. The last few meters
can be thin on rock slabs. Pass an
overhang on the right and enter a
ramp. Follow the ramp to the Crosscut
Ridge. Snow up to 60° with ice bulges.
650m to the ridge.
A strong team can climb the line in a
long day from Homer hut.
ACCESS: Approx 3h from the road.
DESCENT: Rap off the route. Some fixed
rap stations were left in the top part
of the route during the first ascent.
Abalacov’s were used where it was
possible.
GEAR: Short ice screws, full rock rack
including pitons.
