However, in November 2009 we scouted a possible scree-chute descent from Lamarck Col, which looked reasonable to descend to the glacier from the saddle/notch to the immediate right of the SE Slopes. This would enable a team to camp at Lamarck Col, drop into the route, climb, and then descend the SE Slopes right into camp (30-45 minutes from the summit to the Col tarn).
The North Couloir is painfully obvious to anyone with 20/20 vision.
Descent: Descend the SE Slopes, then follow the use trail/X-country back to camp at Upper Lamarck Lake
