These are three single pitch mixed climbs, right next to each other and are located on the far west end of the North Face. The easiest access is to park at the summit, walk west from the parking lot on the ridge for about 200m, drop down the entrance to the Crystal Couloir, and traverse east along the big snow ledge. The approach time is about 5-10 minutes. You can see the route from Summit Lake.

The routes are described from climbers R->L.

1. M3 WI3, 200 feet. There are two old SMC bolts at the base. Climb the excellent snice runnel with a few steep sections. Belay on the ridge.

2. M4- WI3 PG-13, 200 feet. Ascend the snice runnel to the ridge. Belay on the ridge.

3. M2+ WI3, 200 feet. Climb more snice, and it is good fun. Belay on the ridge.
