Aberdeen Glacier

Traverse the lower southern slopes of Fairview and descend ever so slightly (losing several hundred feet) into the Aberdeen Glacier drainage below Sheol Mountain. Follow the drainage for a short distance and start up steep moraine to your left. There is little evidence of a trail here and many make the mistake of following the drainage to the ice which is a longer approach. The steep moraine allows you to traverse to a good starting point on the tongue of the glacier at the lower left hand side.
