Description Suggest change

One of the best, some parties can do it in 4 hours some take two days. Short crux to enter the weakness proper and then steep snow and the intermittent ice pitch till mid height. Then three to four great solid ice pitches to access the upper bowls. Rappels were set for for 100' raps when we did her. But doubles should be mandatory to get down in any kind of decent time.

Location Suggest change

Access by flying into the Root Canal Glacier. Or go old school from the Mountain House and Hump ur ass off.

Protection Suggest change

5-6 screws / light rack maybe five cams / nuts / hexes / pitons / extra material for descent slings
