Approach


From Vivian Creek Trailhead walk toward Mill Creek Jumpoff. Take the obvious gully leading directly up the face toward the summit. As soon as the route steepens, move onto the ridges to either side to avoid funneling of stonefall.

Route Description


Several thousand feet of desperately loose technical ground lead to the summit. This route should only be climbed during extremely frozen conditions, and even then it is not recommended.

Essential Gear


Helmet. Due to the extremely loose and hazardous nature of this climb, a rope is a liability.
