Directions:
From the access point head down a short distance before skinning up the obvious bump feature with the skin track staying on the climber's right. After going around the first bump continue along the track up past the second bump feature and along the climber's right side of the third bump feature. Curve around to the left as you pass moraines to your right to arrive at the top of the third bump. Skin up the ridge feature to the south (skier's right) until you can see over and down the avalanche paths that lead down to the road. Traverse south below the upper cliffs until you find the line you wish to ski.

Many parties will also access this area directly from the highway. Highway side parking is not techincally premitted and in early season you will likely find a small maze of open creeks.
