Description

Head straight up the couloir, starting at about 7,800 feet and finishing at about 8,800 feet. Depending on conditions, it may be a pure snow/neve climb, it may have some ice, or it may have some mixed climbing.

The route finishes just below the knife-edge ridge, which is gained and followed to the summit.

Descend the standard East Ridge.

Location

From the classic East Ridge, hold at about 8,100 feet on a traverse to the North side of the mountain to an obvious notch between the North Ridge and the first rock spire. Find a rappel station and continue down to the West-facing cirque. Head South to the route.

Protection

Ice screws, pickets, and a small rock rack, depending on conditions
