The route climbs the obvious couloir on the north aspect of the mountain. From the couloir, traverse along the southeast ridge for approximately 100 yards until at the base of an obvious left facing corner. Climb the corner and traverse left to a small chimney. Exit the chimney and scramble to the summit.
Pitch 1-3: Climb the couloir. Depending on the snow quality, you could simul-climb.
Pitch 4: Climb the corner to a boulder field and head west toward the summmit
Descent: Rapell down the rock face and traverse the ridge back to the couloir and either downclimb or rapell down the couloir.
3-6 snow picketts
Camalots: .5 - #2

What a great climb! A friend pointed me to this page and I thought it was interesting that this route finally has a name. I know of four or five other ascents of this route, a couple ski descents, and most or them were without a helo. (I know mine wasn't- couldn't afford it!)
Nice to see it established on the Internet- I'm not a mountain project guru but wanted to register and say good work but check yourself before claiming a FA!
See you around town!

Yea we couldn't find ANYTHING about the FA so we figured we'd post it up here to see what we got. Thanks for the info, do you have any information on the FA?
