Start on the WI4 waterfall to the right of the center of the face. The second pitch is the crux. Above the crux there is around 2,000 feet of fairly continous WI3 climbing. A long enjoyable alpine route that tops out on the South summit. See the 2011 AAJ for more info.
Small rock rack and several ice screws
