I didn't know it was "easy", mostly because there is absolutely no beta on it. I mean, c'mon, if you submit a climb you should be required to give at least a basic description of it! Dec 29, 2013
Bad conditions in may 2013, we watched this avalanche at least once an hour for almost a week.This "easy" climb can kill you. Oct 12, 2013

It should say something like after crossing the Berg, ascend the snowfilled couloir on the climber's left side of Barrill (the Japanese couloir). Once at the top of the coulouir, traverse the snow field directly in front of you to the climbers left for 100M. Intermittent rock protection can be found where the snow has receeded from the rock band above. This could be the crux depending on the snow conditions at the top out of the couloir. After the 100M traverse, continue up the second couloir or gulley for 1-2 pitches until the top out onto the upper ridge. Follow the upper snowy ridge to climbers right to the summit. Descent by downclimbing the ascent route. Gear recommendation could include (if not soloing) a single rope, very light rack of nuts couple small cams, a little iron, and a couple pickets.
