From the col, determine whether you will rope up for the snow slope traverse to Mount Aberdeen. Unless you are setting snow protection into the slope, roping will have little meaning. We soloed across the slope without crampons, but a fall here is deadly as steep ice lies below you. Angle your way to the comfortable Aberdeen summit.
