Windows #6 Map

Windows #6 can be accessed from the top of the peak 9 access road, at the boundary gate. Easily accessed from upper or lower Broadway, stay right as the trees begin pull you slightly left. From there you clearly see a well defined chute with large snow pillows and steep lines that is Windows #6. Be careful early season as this area of high alpine terrain can have varying degrees of exposure. Rocks are virtually always a hazard when entering Windows #6, so be careful not to turn in to much while slowing down to enter the trees. You will be able to spot the river from quite a ways up, especially earlier in the season. Once you spot the river, stay right and follow the Windows run out (locally it is called The bobsled run) all the way back to chair E.
