Description

This couloir is super steep and punctuated by a rock headwall.

There are two ways around this: 1.

Climb the rock rib looker's right of the headwall (Class 5.2). 2.

Climb an ice-covered chockstone in the couloir. Either way, a rope is probably warranted.

To top it off, there's a cornice once you're past all this if you're up here early enough. Approach via the Isabelle Glacier.

This is the second-to-last couloir to the climber's right on the cirque.

Once you've made it to the top it's a quick jaunt to the summit, but it's not a cakewalk to get there.
