This route doesn't appear to be in the database. Do you have any more info?

It's in the guidebook. If you look north and a bit W from the Pass, up and across the tundra the Instant Karma crag stands out as the only decent-looking chunk of rock on the hillside. Has a handful of slightly grungy alpine splitters that would benefit from increased traffic. ~45 minute approach, depending on your conditioning (it's at 12K+ feet). One rope. No fixed anchors.

And it goes without saying (or maybe it doesn't, so I'll say it here), try to tread the snow as much as you can to the base. The alpine tundra at this elevation is shockingly fragile, and just a few careless footfalls can leave indelible, scarring impressions. It's that leave-no-trace ethics, thing, right? More than just that Cliff Bar wrapper.

Oh...and don't forget yer glacier glasses! See-ya on the peaks....
