In many seasons you can climb behind this formation to clear the final pitch.P1: Climb the short pitch to the ledge on the right ~30m and belay on a tree that is slung for rappel. (In early season you may be climbing more rock than Ice).(alternate: a ledge 50 feet up has 2 Glue-ins located about 25' to the left on the ledge - may be useful if the route is crowded)....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
