Description:

Same approach as for the Pup's Butt. Climb the ramp that slashes the North Face of Harvey. Mostly 45 degree snow slopes with some short steps a bit steeper. Once you reach the top of the ramp, there may be a bit of WI2, or if you continue around the corner, 60 degree snow. This should lead you to the top. Apparently in condition from December to April. Watch for cornices on the top 60 degree snow. The WI2 may be rotted out in the spring. I don't know the real name of this route or the grading so both are guesses. The ramp is subject to ice fall as the day progresses, so be quick and early. Descend down Magnesia Meadows to the north.
