Pretty consistent angle all the way. Obvious line does not need much of a description. Not as steep as the Central Ice bulge route, but maybe safer? Best in cold conditions I would imagine. Descended by way of the west ridge (a fun route in itself). Went as far as the first opportunity to rap the left hand of the two shorter snow gullies on the north face. Stayed at the Colgan Hut. Got there by way of the 3.5 couloir (minimal rock fall that day) and descended by the Perrin Route.


Last route on the left.


Ice Screws where needed
