Description

A committing route because of its remote location.

Up snow to the beginning of the ramp.

P1-2 (5.8) Climb the ramp using cracks in the corner and later traversing right to the edge.

P3-5 (Class 3) Pitches heading for the summit exit cracks and ending at a sandy ledge where the face steepens.

P6-8 (5.8) There seem to be choices. Climb steep but well-protected cracks which lead to the east ridge.

The summit block has its moments - so suck up and go.

Solo down the Bolton Brown (South Face) Route (5.4).

Location

Approach from Sixty Lake Basin (to the east).

On the east face, a ramp trending leftward.

Protection

Standard alpine rack - ice-axe (seasonal).
