This is simply the "variant" that climbs the left side of the main flow. In most years there is a rock "cave" on the left side of the flow, although this sometimes fills-in in really "thick" years.

In the early years ( i.e. 1970's, before the bolts were put into the cave on the right) this variant was considered pretty much the "standard" way to climb "Standard", as it offered a solid rock-belay.

P1 - Climb to the "cave" on the left. WI 3

P2 - Move out right (photo) and up the flow to the top, WI 3+ to 4- depending on conditions and where you go.


Left side of the main flow.


Usual ice screws, rock gear to back up any old pins in the cave.
