The crux is a well-protected (pins?) slot/roof on great holds. "The Window" pitch is perhaps one of the most memorable anywhere! The route seems to stay a bit on the right side of a ridge.
Climbers should be aware that the route does not top out on the summit. A 50' rappel must be done off the summit of the ridge. From there, one can continue up the Stettner Couloir/snowfields. The preferred alternative is to traverse upwards on a ledge to the Upper Exum Ridge. Either get an early start or solo/simul the Upper Exum if you choose this classic option!
