Description

There are a number of different lines that make their way down the East Face of the Hemlock’s from here but Jeffy’s Line is probably the most fun, and definitely the most aesthetic. This face has an extremely convex start, meaning you can’t see anything from the top. Take note of trees and rocks to help you find your way down the slope. Jeffy’s makes its way through a prominent chute and onto the fairly open face below. Make no mistake, this is a steep, intimidating line that should probably be scoped before being skied.
