Comments: Did this route on 10/8/2012. This is one of those where the leader just belays when he/she runs out of rope. It's good to have a signal worked out as it's virtually impossible to hear each other. There is a prominent black roof that is a good landmark. Go left up the arete, continue left under the black roof, then pretty much straight up to easier ground. The trick here seems to be getting through the headwalls onto ramps.

Comments: There are two sets of bolted rap anchors on this climb. The first is at 200 feet (rope stretcher), and the second 125-150 feet above the first. The anchors are set high above the ice, and as of Nov. 20, 2008 had ropes threaded directly through the hangars. It would be good to redo these with screw links/locking biners and new rope/cord.

Comments: There are 4 sets of anchor bolts with chains on this climb as of 12/10/06, all easily reachable with 60m ropes. The first anchors are about 50 feet up the gully before the real climbing begins. No need to v-thread on this route anymore, unless the bolts are covered. Be careful not to climb past the chains, like I did at the last set!
