Description 

Northwest Face - ledges. This is a mountaineer's route.

Beware of avalanche danger!

Location 

Approach exactly like you're headed for the NW Face.
When you are spitting distance to the base of Birds of Fire, hang a hard right. Follow the right-rising ledge to the west shoulder of the peak.

Protection 

2 pickets maybe & 1/3 rock rack.
