From the parking area at the south end of lake willoughby head uphill directly toward the Twenty Below Zero Gully Area. Float Like a Butterfly is the massive flow around a narrow buttress to the left of Twenty Below Zero.
Pitch 1: Climb thin easy ice up to a short vertical crux about 20' long. Continue for another 120' on 60 degree ice to a belay stance. WI4 200'
Pitch2 : Pick one of any number of lines up the massive flow above. Typically, there will be 60-80' of WI3/3+ up to a WI 4+/5- 50' section. 90' of easy ice above gets you to the trees. This pitch can be as easy as WI4 if you pick the right line or as hard as WI5. WI4+ 200'
Descent : Rap 200' off trees at the top and set a Vthread for another 200' rappel to the ground or walk uphill and right to the descent trail which brings you to the base of the tablets.
A typical willoughby column rack of 9-10 scews will suffice however, some shorty screws should be taken to protect the initial thin sections.
Equipment for vthreading if you plan to rappel.
If you have information about this route that doesn't pertain to any of the other sections, please add it here.
