Re: Good beta

Yeah. Cool photo. Looks way different than when I did it last February. Lots of rock exposed. I believe Craig and I went directly over that tower encountering several 60 degree pitches. Your way looks easier.

Re: Good beta

The route marked in this photo had some thin snowcover for April. [Disregard this old speculation: I think in May-June people drop below and to climber's right of the closest cliff in this photo before turning left up the final couloir.]

Re: Good beta

The two times I've done this route (January and June) we've gone this same direction. Going down and to the right would put you at the top of the Newton-Clark headwall?
