View of the hotlam-bolam route from the northgate trailhead. Line shows our ascent route, but due to poor beta available I'm not sure if this is the route proper or just a variation that worked for us. Red line starts at around 11,000 feet, detours around the two bergschrunds/crevasses, and ascends the first snow gully. Blue line ascends the second gully, which drops climber's right towards the Bolam glacier (the gully way right of the red line is the same gully). Green line ascends the third gully below the shark's tooth (prominent peak just right of where the green line ends). From here we traversed climber's right and uphill to the summit saddle.
