DescriptionThis is a fun climb in an excellent setting.
When we climbed this in late September 2010 the bottom half of the couloir consisted of nice neve, and the top half consisted of 4 pitches of beautiful plastic ice.
We soloed up the neve and started properly belaying where the ice began. The ice gets progressively steeper until the top of the couloir. After topping out turn left and climb 70' of class 3 to the summit. Enjoy the spectacular view!
