From the end of FR 585 at the South Mineral Campground this is the prominent line of ice visible to the south. Most only climb the first 2-3 pitches then rap off. Easier WI2 continues above. Descend by rapping the route or walk off from the top.
The descent has new rap anchors as of 2020. A single 70m rope will get you down. The first anchor is ~110' on the right, the second anchor is ~100' on the left, and the third anchor is ~110' of the left.
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.
To descend, thread or find a suitable tree.
