FATMAP difficulty grade
Start at the Leigh Lake trailhead.
Paddle String Lake, then portage to Leigh Lake.
Paddle to the Falling Ice Glacier drainage.
(You can also hike, but it's a tricky bushwhack from the Patrol Cabin.) Ascend boulder / talus along the runoff.
~Halfway up, turn left and follow a trail to Drizzlepuss.
Rappel (or downclimb) to the start of CMC Face. There are many variations up CMC Face, from low class 5 on the south ridge to mid-5s closer to the Black Dike.
Rappel (or downclimb) back to Drizzlepuss, upclimb being the crux.
Reverse course from the Drizzlepuss summit. We used two 60m ropes and a mix of cams / nuts.
You can find a number of maintained anchors along CMC Face and one on Drizzlepuss. Full trip report: https://www.grizzliesandavalanches.com/cmc-face/
