Description

This is a fun line with a slightly technical entrance into the chute.

Start at the East Wall gate near the tops of the Lenawee Mountain lift and Zuma lift.

Follow the boot pack up to the top of the ridge line, and then turn left and follow the ridgeline till reach the small peak.

Then follow the ridge line down the other side.

Eventually you will reach the first notch, continue around the rock outcropping until you see the second notch.

Hike up to the notch opening and grab the anchored rope at the top (Having a backpack to hold skis and a pole helps a bunch by freeing up a hand) .

Down climb about 10 to 15 feet till you reach a good ledge.

Then strap in and enjoy the route down.
