Climb the low-angle ice slab to the short headwall. Several means of passing this are possible, ranging from WI1 escape to R or L to WI3 over the steepest section.
The lower slab is little more than a WI1 scramble.
Sunshine hits the headwall hard, sending down significant chunks of ice. Do this one early if at all.
The low-angle slab is often a snow-slog. This one isn't recommended, though it's not quite a bomb.


A few minutes farther up the summit trail from Tablerock Corner, at a low-angle slab leading to a short, steep headwall lying a few yards off the trail.
