Getting across the bergshrund is tricky. Traverse rock and snowfields to the base of the couloir. At its best, there is good snow for quick passage and also big faucets of cool water. Too early - no water. Too late - death by self-induced rockfall. Don't miss the ramp to the ridge on the right. Short sections of 5.6 ish problems with 4th and 5th class scrambling in between. You will see webbing on rap stations on the way up every 35 meters or so. Or you can rap a steeper way if the loose rock is exposed in the coulior and you've brought your own webbing. 1400 feet total elevation gain from snowfield start. Summit is 6910.

I climbed this route in June 2004 with Bulldog. Very fun indeed.
