Description

Starting from the Hanging Snowfield (Visible from the canyon floor) ascend the slab that leads to another lower angle snow field. This can be done in three pitches. From there, continue up and right until you reach the base of the couloir. The couloir itself ascends approximately 1200 feet to a small saddle. From the saddle, scramble north for about 200 feet to the summit.

Descent:
From the small saddle at the top of the couloir, there will be an obvious large bowl to the west. Follow the bowl until you reach a flat basin at the bottom. From there, proceed South through a long chute to the valley floor.

Protection

An assortment of ice screws and rock pro. The climbers right side of the couloir has the best protection options, that seem to get better the higher you go.
