Gain the ridge around 7500 ft after 2-3 hours of glacier travel. Head up the ridge via moderate snow bypassing a pinnacle on right.
Junky towers and bergschrunds ahead - bypass them left/east via low-moderate angle ramps within the icefall. Choose whichever is least interrupted by crevasses.
Regain the ridge prior to Cockscomb. This section has insanely loose and sketchy rock in the wrong season. Pass Cockscomb on left via steep snow. Later in the season, one may have to descend to the Park Glacier and climb the headwall (AI3, several screws).
Follow the snow/glacier ridge up to the summit.
Descend Coleman-Deming (easy-moderate glacier).
