This is a great route that offers a challenge if you want to pass time while waiting for Upper Hitchcock. Depending on conditions it is tough to leave the ground as the first 30 feet is usually thin and deceiving. Most parties will do this in 2 pitches. Climb the first half to a shelf and build an anchor (Ice is not present in some years). Continue up a steep corner stemming or what ever may work for the conditions. Exit and use a tree anchor.
This route is located in the corner 20' left of Upper Hitchcock. Climb Lower Hitchcock Gulley or Left Hand Monkey Wrench. Continue left to Upper Hitchcock. You can easily hike up and right eventually meeting up with the Upper Hitchcock summit trail. Follow trail to the AMC or rappel via lower Hitchcock.
