It offers three steps/cruxes early in the route followed by a moderate snow climb to top out on Otis Peak. The cruxes feel similar to those found on Dreamweaver, though somewhat shorter.
In late May (2017), the hardest crux was the third one. The right side offered ice but was a bit rotten at the bottom, making for a difficult start. The left side was mostly rock under a bit of snow.
Descent options are plentiful. Descend Andrew's Glacier, traverse around to Flattop, or head down Otis's East Ridge, and pick a line back to Lake Haiyaha.
