Double Rubble Map

Traverse left straight from the bottom of the Blow Hole on the Glacier. Some diagonal side-stepping is required to stay as high as possible under the permanently closed cliff area above. Stay as high as possible due to risk of cliff and cornices. Once it flattens out again a small rock wall will be on your right. Navigate your way through here to the chute which follows down to the right and hooks back round to the left spitting you out near the bottom of the Sapphire Chutes in Spanky's ladder.
