Description

The route climbs a prominent icy chimney that is similar to, but harder than, the crux of the Black Dike on Cannon Cliff in New Hampshire. Above the chimney, continue on easier ground up toward the huge overhang. Skirt the right side of the spectacular overhang that is festooned with giant icicles that hang in space. Easier climbing leads a snow ridge, which can be followed up and right (east) to the summit (18,158 feet).

Location

In the left center of the south face at about 2/3 height is a huge overhang with icicles dripping from it. This route starts roughly below the right edge of the huge overhang.

Protection

Carry an alpine rack.
