Description 

40-50 degree snow. Moderate, difficulty depends on snow conditions. I climbed this route on 5/29/17. Snow was hard, low on the route, and soft enough to kick steps near the top. I chopped a few steps along the way. The angle was fairly consistent. Short, 600 feet, more or less. There is a left and a right fork.

Descend the West Ridge.

Location 

See photos. Route is easy to see on the approach hike.

Protection 

Crampons, axe.
