Description

To access this line, you start by hiking Willy's Staircase. Once you summit Willy's, you will then see the rest of the hike that goes uphill to the left. Follow this very steep hike over the rock formations, and favor your uphill left. The bootpack will eventually end, and you will have to traverse to get over the line. Enjoy nice steep and long turns to the bottom with cliff options on either side depending on coverage. This line is a great choice because it is not as popular as the other lines on the East Wall. Make sure to check for openings when skiing this line.
