Early August '16 conditions. Late, that is. Ma...

Description 

Celestial Lotion goes up the East couloir on North face. 30 degree alpine ice/snow from rolling moraines at the bottom of the face and steepens to 60 degrees right at the top. It goes from wide to narrow, gets early sun, and is bounded by rotten rock walls. Trust only ice/snow pro. Beware of rockfall. This couloir tops out below summit on the East ridge. There is a short, easy scramble to the summit.

Location 

From Blue Lakes Trailhead, hike your person and all your gear up the trail and cross the creek at aboot the two mile point. Once across the water hazard (don't get wet!), turn right into the shrubery and ascend with easy bushwhacking up climber's left side of the creek another mile-and-a-half or so to the north face. The route is looker's left (East).

Descend the same way, or go somewhere else.

Protection 

There is no rock pro. Bring a helmet, iceaxe, and crampons.
