Description:

From where Yukla Creek drains out of the Icicle Glacier drainage, head into the valley for some serious bushwhacking. This area is easier in the winter, but be aware of the serious avalanche danger in the area. A four mile uphill struggle brings you to the Icicle Glacier and the base of the Northeast Ridge. The climbing on the route itself is mostly scrambling on loose scree and talus up to the ridge, where you will most llikely encounter a layer of snow over the scree. As you near the summit, you will encounter some permanent snowfields that may be steep enough to necessitate roping up, or at least careful attention to avoid a fall. Crampons and ice axes can come in useful. To descend, reverse the route.
