OverviewGreat route. Head up the snow slope to the rock buttress between the NE and NW (snake) couloirs. The best start is on the left side. Climb a fairly steep section (good pro) for approximately 300ft (5.5). Head up the obvious weaknesses (3/4th class) to a ridge that parallels the left side of the Snake Couloir. Climb around some small gendarmes to the col at the top of the Snake. Easy scambling to the summit. Descend to Lavender Col and drop down below Kismet back to Blaine Basin.
Getting ThereTake the Blaine Basin trail. Easy trail for 4 miles all the way to the base of the North Face.
