Description [Suggest Change]
Mostly, the route is 45 degree snow. At the top of the couloir it ramps up to a bit less than 50 degrees and in later season turns into ice.
Location [Suggest Change]
The route follows the couloir between the northeast ridge and the rib east of the Darwin glacier.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Perhaps an ice tool is needed in late summer and fall.
