Description 

"Hike up the left side of the slabs, and walk up to the right on a prominent ramp (second class) to a small platform at its end on the north ridge. Climb about five leads up cracks and faces, with good granite rock, good protection, and ledges for belays."

From Climber's Guide to the Rocky Mountain National Park Area, by Walter W. Fricke, Jr., 1971.

Location 

After reaching the remarkable summit plateau, cross to the far side and either do a 15 meter rappel or downclimb (loose) to the notch. After the notch, descend the east side couloir to easier ground.
