Directions:  Located on the left side of the face, just right of an obvious rock buttress.
Description: Twenty Below is hardly your typical gully climb. In fact it's not a gully at all. The first climb done at the Lake, it's a very popular route. always in the sun it's usually running water so be sure to wear your rain gear! Altho it was originally climbed in 3 pitches, with 60 meter ropes it can be done in 2. There is a niche/cave on the left about 1/2 way up that provides a reasonably protected standa for the belayer.
Gear: standard ice rack
Descent: Rappel from the trees at the top to a tree and stance 1/2 way down on the left. Continue down and trend right to the ground.
History:  January 1974 - Henry Barber, Michael Hartrich, Al Rubin
