Icicle Ridge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"“Icicle” is an interpretation of the native word “nasikelt” meaning “steep-sided canyon.” The ridge forming the northern boundary of Icicle Canyon is indeed steep-sided, but by climbing it lengthwise from east to west, you can avoid some of the steepness. Adequate snow cover is essential for an enjoyable tour, as are an early start and a high level of fitness. Difficulties: Moderate avalanche potential; permit / fee area; not recommended for snowboarders."
