Description 

The details of this area are unknown. There is potential for probable first ascents?

I am posting to let the community know it is there.

There are definitely a few potential lines. The rock looks like it may vary from good, to complete choss nightmare. Scout your route carefully, and proceed with caution.

Getting There 

Hike in from Guanella Pass via Rosalie Trail to Abyss Lake Trail. Cut off at first lake, and head up into the Frozen Lake Basin. The East Ridge will be on your right. The Southwest Face will be staring at you on the approach.
