Don't underestimate the approach on this one, there's about 3000' of vertical gain before you even start climbing. Avoid the main gully where the waterfall is coming down. Instead, aim for the smaller waterfall over smooth rock on the right; tucked away to the right of that is the correct gully. The trail is pretty well defined all the way up.

I dropped my phone somewhere in the descent gully, I'd be happy to reward anyone who finds it, it's an iPhone in a black case. Also this was an outstanding climb! I'd recommend to anyone looking to break into alpine climbing
