Description 

(from Secor, page 240)
This follows the right-hand couloir on the NE face. There is steep snow low in the couloir, followed by a narrow slot choked with chockstones. Follow the couloir to the notch behind the North Peak, then go left to the true summit.

Location 

The first chute climber's left of the Dark Star Buttresses. Best climbed in late May / early June.

Protection 

4-6 ice screws
light alpine rack
