This route exists on the east side of the canyon, right of Bridalveil Falls and left 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 prominent snow chute. Hike to the top of the snow chute to gain access to the route, proper.
