Description [Edit]

An enjoyable spring outing to the summit of Mt Irvine. Also likely the quickest, and most direct route to the summit.
About 2000' of moderate (30 degree) snow climbing up a prominent couloir. The top of the couloir deposits you very close to the summit. A short scramble along the ridge brings you to the summit

Location [Edit]

Take the Meysan lakes trail, head up to the right of the lake. The obvious couloir to the right of the buttress.

Protection [Edit]

Ice axe, crampons
