Steep snow deposits you to a 20M smear of ice in the couloir.
1st pitch- Climb the ice up and to the right establishing a belay as the ice peters out. The ice is good and takes pro well.
2nd pitch- A snow slog up the rest of the couloir. Beware of avalanche conditions as protection is scarce.


On the East Buttress of Watchtower (just south of the cirque lake), the central couloir that faces NE. Follow the highest snow to its highest point on the base of the buttress.


Ice screws supplimented with a light rock rack for anchor and the second pitch.
