relicSW "slope"  Sucess!

I suggest for anyone wishing to avoid the loose stuff in the couloir, from the basin on the west side of the peak, go due south over the step, aiming for the "7200" mark on the USGS map, that cliff is easily ascended with a bit of route judgment. Then just walk up the SW slope to the false summit, then go through the notch. Exposure at the famous notch pretty much requires a rope, but an obvious catwalk/ledge around the notch wall makes it a cakewalk, plus there are great spots to easily sling the rope to the wall.

With Fred. A really crappy gully with lots of loose rock. The summit ridge was pleasant. Beautiful weather with great views.

This face was much steeper and more commiting than the description led us to believe. The rock is poor and the ice thin. Pick your conditions well.

Attempted the North Face. Made it about 1/2 way and bailed due to poor ice conditions.

Solo (e.g. alone)

Again with Moni on 12 Sept. 2012 - I totally forgot how awful the talus and scree were in the couloir.
