DescriptionHead 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.
