Apparently a super high quality climb! Gear 60m rope #0.3-4 with doubles through #2, single #3-4 Nuts Approach Approaching from Colchuck Lake is about 3 miles one-way shorter than Snow Lake, and possibly a little less elevation gain although ends up being close since on the way back you’ll have to go up some first…
