With a 20 minute downhill approach and a downhill return to the car, alpine grovelling does not get much more civilized than this.
Park at Summit Lake, take the broad trail towards the notch-facing the Tan Buttresses, drop down and left into the cirque. Head down to below the first buttress on the left. You will see a number of gullies heading towards the ridge. This particular one is towards the right side of the buttress and starts as a pretty parallel-sided gully about 15 feet wide at the bottom. Also, look for a steep chimney in the gully about 200 feet up.
Some rock gear and perhaps a stubby screw or two.
