fox Creek

Rating: WI3
Length: 50 meters

This is a relatively moderate and short route but is rather wide and can accomodate several climbing groups. It is possible to gain access on the left gulley to the top of the route to set up a toprope. There is also an interesting rock wall to the left of the main ice route for challenging mixed terrain. A tree is easily accessible on the top of the rock route.

Anchor/Descent: Trees are present for a rappel. A walk off is possible.
