Shades of Beauty

Shades of Beauty 120m WI 4

Shades of Beauty 120m WI 4 is found up Beauty Creek and is one of the first routes to come in and the last to melt out.

A series of 30m grade 4 steps that can be challenging early season when thin.

This route is on the north aspect and gets no sun.

The Rick Blak Route is 100m to the right and is a 50m grade 5 steep pitch that forms over a rock slab. Great climbing and often thin.
