Big 'Lak

Rating: WI4
Length: 325 meters

Biggest, longest climb in the area. First pitch starts mixed then leads to good ice. Follow the grade 4 ice for the first two pitches to the first bench and then proceed up the snow/ice gulley for a nice alpine finish. 1000+ feet in all to the top.

FA: Tyler Johnson and John Ellinwood, 2008
