This route starts between the two main icefalls on the Icicle Glacier. The line isn't visible until you're above the first icefall. It's around 1,200 feet of ice to the hanging glacier on the North Ridge and then snow from there to the top. It tops out on the sub peak on the North Ridge.

Third classed on the FA but you may want a small rock rack and some ice screws
