From the end of FR 585 at the South Mineral Campground this is the prominent line of ice visible up to the left. Most only climb the first 2-3 pitches of stepped WI3-4 then rap off. Easier WI2-3 continues above. Descend by rapping the route or walk off from the top. First bolted anchor is ~110' up in the right wall, second bolted anchor is another~100' up high in the left wall, third bolted anchor is another ~100' in the left wall.
There is also another pitch of ice to the left of the main couloir. It is ~150', WI3. There is no fixed anchor on this one. Do a v-thread or find a suitable tree.
