A cool route that likely doesn't get the attention it deserves, what a fun feature! Worth noting, There is lots of snow travel on this route up high (July 2016), conditions dependent obviously. There are a few bail options mentioned in the Jackson/Otenberger guide, take a minute to familiarize with them, as most folks Ive talked to don't climb this all the way to the summit of the middle, but rather bail from the col, especially, if like us you run into a lot of snow in approach shoes. We dropped into the south fork, and it was pretty straightforward, once we reread the description of cutting west on grassy ledges just above where you get cliffed out. Have fun out there!
