Overall an amazing route in a great location. Pretty straightforward, but remote - so self-reliance is key. Most of the accidents, and "near misses" (of which there have been MANY!) occur, not on the NE-3 ice, but above the ice where snow conditions can be treacherous and misleading...what looks and feels like beautiful neve may be three-foot-thick windslab. Take care, and remember: "It ain't over till it's over!"


To the left of the low-angle Central Gully and just to the right of Pinnacle Buttress.


Screws - possibly some rock gear for belays (there is fixed gear easily found on both sides of the gully at 60m rope lengths)
