Posted here because it's the descent route.

There's an obvious short snow couloir (talus in late season) at the left end of the Southeast Ridge. Climb up this, cross over to the south side then follow Class 3 rocks below the crest of the ridge to the summit.


Ice Axe when there's snow.

We used this as the descent from Feather Peak after climbing Feather Couloir. Descend down the Southeast slope, trending left towards the saddle between Feather and Royce Peaks. The southeast slope consisted of intermittent 3rd class downclimbing, and loose sandy slogging. You may need to drop a little below the saddle and climb back up to it on the loose sand . . .

Once at the saddle downclimb more 3rd class until you are forced onto the couloir which was mostly hard neve in September. There was a rap anchor on top of the couloir too, but I'm not sure if you'd be able to rap all the way down. . .
