P1: climb any of several options to gain a bench about a half rope-length above. We chose the left most option as it looked easiest, but it turned out to have a heady M6 R crux at the end. Future parties may want to experiment with other options (100 feet, M6 R, though there's a pretty good chance an easier option exists to the left).
P2: kick steps and simul-climb up steep snow past one rock band. After a while, the gully will narrow and steepen for some more difficult climbing past a chockstone (300 feet, M5).
P3: battle a snow mushroom and execute a crawl move around the left side of a chockstone (150 feet, M4).
P4: climb one more short pitch to The Gash (100 feet, M3).
At this point, you can continue to the summit of The Sharkstooth, descend The Gash, or rappel the route.
