    Margarita 240m, III, WI3+

    ?FA: Fraser Sprigings & Krissy Boucher March 6, 2008

    Located in Yoho National Park on Mount Field, this south facing climb can be seen from the highway as you turn onto Yoho Valley Road. Park almost immediately as the road turns to the right. Walk up the first significant gulley to the left of the avalanche slope leading to Silk Tassel. The approach takes 30min. The base is located at 377967 (UTM NAD 83) and takes the left fork out of the main approach gulley.

    Climb a 60m pitch of WI2-3 to two pitons located on the right rock wall. Walk up the snow for 60m to where the gulley pinches. A short WI2 pitch will lead you to the crux pitch. A sultry 60m WI3+ pitch takes you to the top of the climb.

    Descent: Rappel the route. Abalakov anchors and some tree options are available.
