South facing bowl off of the South Ridge of Peak 10. A go-to option if you are staying at Francie's Cabin. It's southeast facing, so plan it early or time it right. To access this bowl, follow the Herb's bowl access route from the Spruce Creek Trailhead. You can climb the line from the uphill looker's right side.
