May 28th, 2005 - The Northwest Ridge seen from Capitol Lake. A is the III 5.7 Steep Snow/Ice variation, which is plagued by rockfall in the Slingshot Couloir. B is the III 5.9 variation that bypasses this rotten couloir by ascending a crack that drops into a chimney.

Note: The labeling for the routes & feautres is done as a best guess based on route descriptions.The 5.7 variation may top out on the next snowy chute over, but I couldn't determine this for certain.
