The view of Green Butte from Helen Lake.

Description 

This route offers a less crowded alternative to the classic Cassaval Ridge, which it lies beside. Approach as you would for Cassaval and head right once in the large snow bowl, instead of left.

Once on the ridge, follow easy mountaineering terrain up until this ridge almost meets Cassaval Ridge. You'll have to head left at this point to reach the large plateau just below the summit.

Protection 

1-2 snow stakes
