July 25th, 2005 - Approaching the base of the Pipeline Couloir ca. 7am. The tongue of snow on the left appears to be a doable route earlier in the year when it has more snow cover. The waterfall pouring down the lower part of it leads me to believe that in the mid-spring the lower portion could be a mixed WI climb. In lack of a better name I'm calling it "Cleavage".
Addition: The waterfall occasionally forms a WI4 variation to access the couloir. Some people call the variation "Rookie Party".
