P2-( 2 options). Option 1- Climb the thin, steep smear on the left with little to no protection to a nice ledge and better ice. W?
Option 2- Climb out right around the corner on a nice foot ledge. From here find the path of least resistance pounding pins up a low angle rock face, aim for a flake in a right facing corner (this took an OK nut). Mix your way to the lip and (hopefully) good ice and a belay. 5.8 W3 120ft.
P3. Climb up a good low angle ice ramp to the snowfield and dig yourself in. W3. short
P4-9. Depending on your conditions this could be a snow wallow or a cruise up frozen crust. The view from the ridge is really worth while. As you can see the AF/LCC ridge-line on your right and the upper reaches of Timp. on your left.
Descent: We walked down the north-east ridge eventually dropping down some steep bush lined gulley's to find the Aspen Grove Trail.
