The snow pitches on this route have potential to slide, be smart. Go up the gully and climb a pitch of WI3. continue up on WI2/ moderate snow for a few hundred feet untill you can see the upper pitches. a short WI4 column leads to a cave at the base of the "dangler". belay in the cave. Climb right and clip some pitons then gently gain the haning ice curtain. Continue up and build a belay somewhere sheltered from ice. Next pitch continues up over a short vertical headwall, belay from some blobs at the top. The bonus pitch continues up a thin column and can easily be skipped or bypassed. Continue to the top of the ridge and enjoy the view. to descent rap the route on V-threads.
go climbers left at the base of dribbles and walk a hundred yards or so to the next drainage. continue up the gully
