Fun, alpine climbing. Snowstorm just as we made summit.
Climbed with Jason. We climbed up from the ramp back toward the ridge. Made the large ledge in 2 pitches and scrambled around to last pitch to top. Fun route.
Not sure we were on route at all until the final pitch. The first couple pitches we climbed were quite a bit harder than those described. Obviously this is one of the joys of alpine climbing!
What a great climb - classic. Lots of snow to the base of the ramp (P1 - low class 5). Only used a rope for P2 (5.6); start in a low-angle corner, up over a dihedral to a beautiful hand crack with a nice overhang to finish. One solid fixed pin with plenty of gear placements. We un-roped from there. P3 (low class 5) was rather uneventful – a few low angle slabs with awkward moves. I thought the chimney was also low class 5 (possibly even class 4). The fixed pin looks to be solid. Be careful of the loose block at the top of the chimney. I was in shorts (nice, clam day), but can imagine fierce wind would drive one to wear wind gear
Just over two years since my first attempt which ended badly. What a cool climb.
