This is the most obvious route on the Southeast face of Flattop. It's pretty easy to spot from Emerald Lake, so just walk to the west side and then start up the snow gully.
Look up for the ice from Emerald Lake, and follow the obvious snow gully. Belay from the left side as ice can fall down below the flow. Continue up the obvious snow gully after the short rock pitch.
