Climb the 200+ft steep crusted snow ramp to the base of the ramp beneath the steepening wall. Veer right away from the multiple free standing pillars (crux) and finish route.
Central south side of the notch. Parking is directly below the climb at a pull off parking lot. Walk down westerly or rappel from trees.
Ice screws. belay at the trees above the climb.
