It doesn’t always completely fill in and when it does it has a short season.The approach can be misery as well. But for adventure climbers, this can be a fun way to spend a day. Use the same bushy approach gully as Stovepipe. Navigate through bushes, snow and exposed talus. Take the left of the 2 gullies, the right being Stovepipe. The setting of the climb changes dramatically as you enter a high walled, deep couloir. The lower section sometimes has a ledge you’ll need go around or over, but it’s small. The couloir curves left, where you can see the top out. Skirt a rock bulge to the right, then move through a choke to the top out on the ridge.

Continue up the ridge to the summit of Boott Spur, then down climb Hillman’s Highway. Or use Boot Spur Trail to descend, note that this may not be broken out. 


Same approach as Stovepipe, but split to the left at the base of the buttress where Stovepipe begins.


Pickets if it's firm or you're nervous about the exposure.
