An exaggeratedly “heinous” approach (hour or so with scree in the last third) leads to a pitch of WI3 into a narrowing chimney. Pass a body-width section of chimney of varying difficulty, depending on how much ice, to a large ledge with bolts on the right wall. Climb the possibly overhanging pillar at WI5 to the next set of bolts. Lower angle ice continues above this for a couple hundred feet.

Pick a calm day to do this as wind blows right up the route and you probably don’t like lacerating your corneas with ice chips and snow...


Ascend the gully just left of Main Vein. Descend crossing skiers right a couple hundred feet below the start of the route to a scree field and boot ski heaven.
