Getting There

From the Practice face at the top of the approach trail, turn right and proceed a short while to a major, left facing corner (the Minsi Curtain ice climb in winter) Teardrop buttress follows the low-angle prow to the right. To descend from the top, rappel with two ropes from the top of Teardrop buttress. A cautious single rope rappel from Gaplander is also possible.
