Description [Suggest Change]

Justification starts up a short couloir that runs halfway up the northwest face before traversing onto the west shoulder to the summit.

Start climbing the couloir up moderate snow past two chockstones to a small snowfield below a 20' of easy mixed climbing. The easy mixed will end in the largest snowfield and the end of the couloir. From here, traverse climber's right on an obvious ledge to a chimney. Climb the chimney until possible to traverse to climber's right again to easier terrain. Once out of the chimney, climb virtually straight up to the top.

Location [Suggest Change]

The route is obvious from the trailhead as in winter the couloir is the only place snow consistently collects.

After summitting, descend the south face.

Protection [Suggest Change]

The rock is typically of poor quality limestone/marble. Small cams to a #1, nuts, a couple pins. Snow pickets would work at the top of the first pitch.
