took variations of this in winter. one variation is left of the drawn-in line in the photo and went straight up the face from the lower scree slopes). another went up an east chimney/couloir through rocks (5.5, AI2) and then along the ridge top to summit. both are fun mixed routes. the north face is a must do but never got to it.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
