Attractions: “From the pass a trail leads up towards the ridge to the N. and W. After a couple hundred vertical feet, traverse out on S. slope of ridge to gain the northern margin of the glacier. Usually it is best to stay on northern end of glacier until arriving at high glacier bench below main face of peak. Then traverse under face to snow thumb that leads onto the rock. Cross bershrund where feasible and ascend snow thumb to rock gully on right margin. Climb up and stay right. Climb several hundred feet and traverse over into next gully left. Climb this to obvious notch in NE ridge. Turn S. and climb and traverse to highest point.”
