Keystone Greensteps

Rating: WI5
Length: 200 meters

This is the longest route in the canyon that consists of four pitches of vertical ice. The first ascent took two days with a bivouac but is usually now climbed in a single push. This route is massive and many variations are possible but is more sustained throughout than Bridalveil Falls.

FA: Jeff Lowe & John Weiland, January 1976

Anchor: Rappel the route off of v-threads or access the pipeline road at the top of the route and walk to the right to gain access to a prominent chute just past Love's Way.

Lat: 61 04.192 N
Long: 145 53.957 W

This route exists on the east side of the canyon, left of Love's Way and right of Glass Onion.  Park in the large pullout directly across from the route and hike down and across the Lowe River to gain access to the base of the route.
