The hardest move technically is near the bottom; however, the extended drytooling of the high corner is the mental challenge.
The route begins in a left-facing corner with a fair mixture of rock, snow, and ice. At its top, move up and left to directly below a small right-facing corner of rock running straight up a slab. Here, the ice dissipates almost entirely, except for a bit in the inner crack. That is the sole place for picks, and for much of this, only the left foot gets solid crampon placement.


Near the right end of the Beaverview Wall, at a short left-facing corner on a sloping ledge above a steep face with several narrow lines of ice.


Not sure; probably would take pins.
