AI3 at it's hardest. This is a fun route and very moderate for it's AI3 rating, if you're OK with steep snow it's a cruiser route. The reputation that this route has received due to the rumors of horrible rock fall is not entirely deserved, and the objective danger has definitely been blown out of proportion. The descent is more tricky...

I agree that the descent is more tricky, but you do have to remain alert for the false step would result in a long ride. As for the rock fall, I'd climb it nice & frozen just to avoid rolling the dice.
