This route is described in Selected Climbs in the Cascades vol. II. and the Fred Beckey guide. The route is best when snow covered. Snow to 45 degrees. The area is prone to avalanches. Potential for overhanging cornices. If someone has a picture, please post, it was a low vis. day when I went.
Follow the PCT to the upper basin and the start of the ridge.
There are enough trees for a running belay if roped.
