Follow the couloir as it winds up and then hits a steep wall. Continue along the base of this wall to the left and look for the exit. The finish includes steep snow to 60+ degrees and deposits you on the ridge just below the summit.


The deep couloir higher up the glacier than the North Buttress Coulor, below the Northeast Buttress, accessed from the Colchuck Glacier


Snow protection and a small alpine rock rack, including pins
