Ski 10-15 miles back Matanuska Glacier. Take right fork (Icing Glacier) and ski another 10-15 miles. Camp at around 5,000' on the Icing Glacier. The route climbs a perfectly symmetrical knife edge ridge for the first 1,500'. The crux breaks thru a hanging serac/ buldge. The final 2,500' is steep snow and ice climbing up to 70 degrees
