Ice Routes at Evans Notch - The Basin: Mt. Meader: grouped by Area, sorted by Name
Description: The climbing is above the Basin Pond on the left on the North side of Mt. Meader. Looking from the Basin pond the flows can be seen as a thin horizontal line of yellow ice in the center of the face at half height on the mountain. Yet another back country climbing experience in a gorgeous location.
Directions: Drive Rt 113 towards Evans Notch and park where possible at the entrance to the Basin Campground. Hike or ski the Basin Road into Basin Pond. Approach as for the other routes in the basin via the Basin Trail as far as the bridge at the end of the pond. Just before the bridge turn left into the woods and bushwack along the left bank to the second major drainage. Follow the stream bed up the drainage moving right around a steep section and then back left. The approach takes about an hour to an hour and a half. The cliff is about 100' high and a couple of hundred feet wide.
