A good mix, ascends a snow/ice ramp to gain the West ridge, continues up to the summit on suspect rock.

4 out of 5 stars Great Rockies Intro

I hadn't climbed in Canada before so this was a nice easy day route to get an introduction to the snow conditions and how things roll up there. Climbed the 3-4 couloir to the backside of the Neil Colgan and headed up from there.

Note to self don't let partners talk you into downclimbing steep snow roped together. Plenty of better options.
