Mud Slide

Rating: WI3

This route climbs a moderate angle of a left-facing dihedral. The bottom consists of a short, steep pillar which leads to snow and a low angle section. A thin, 70 degree slab makes up the second crux of the climb.

FA: Rick Parks & Andrew Embick, December 1979

Anchor: A hike off to the right to gain access to a gully allows for a descent. Rappelling the route may not be possible because of thin conditions.
