Directions:  Itís also the location of The 5.12 Pillar ice climb. Hike the old Bouchard Cabin road as if going to Whitehorse until you get to the large boulder. Continue a few hundred feet towards Whitehorse until a faint logging road appears on the right. Follow the road as it rises and doglegs back in the direction of Cathedral. At the very top of the road a small wall will appear on your left. There are other small undocumented outcroppings and boulder problems in the surrounding area.
Description: This climb is the 5.12 pillar (a.k.a. The Drip In The Woods) in the winter.
    Pitch 1: Make a tricky boulder start, do a easy middle section and stout last move to gain the two ringbolt anchor.

Gear: draws
Descent: rap from 2-bolt anchor
History:  August 2002 - Ian White (age11), Brad White
