Ascend the Tepee Glacier up a steep snow field to a small col. Cross a short exposed slope to another small col that separates the Tepee from the Stettner Couloir. A short easy decent brings you into the Stettner and the technical climbing begins here. The climbing starts with a narrow 8' ice and rock step to an easy snow slope. A 10' ice bulge and some snow brings you up to a fixed anchor on the East side of the Coulior. From here you can see the water ice of the Chevy Coulior flowing on the left. We left the Stettner and did a short pitch into the Chevy up to a fixed anchor on the right. From here climb the fun and easy WI of the Chevy to another fixed anchor on the right. Your in the Ford Coulior now, drink some water, stash the heavy climbing stuff, and start boot packing. At the top of the Ford Couloir the summit is visible a 100 meters to the WNW.
Click in and make some turns!
Rap the Chevy and Stettner (4 double rope raps for us)
