(III) 5.6 AI2 From the hut, make way to the mint glacier proper and veer rght up into the bowl of troublemint. Climb the gully of ice/snow. There are few places to rest while frontpointing up the 70 degree ice. Once the col is reached easy terrain takes you along the ridge to the first pitch of a wide crack with a huge spear of a flake beneath, runs 5.5 or so, once this is reched a belay station of runners around chock stones is found on a little pedestal beneath the second pitch of rock. This pitch is slightly harder at 5.6 and has a few old hexes buried in it last time I was there. upon the top of this pitch the rdge continues to the summit. The summit itself is a ginormous block with lots of exposure on near all sides. Beware as a fall from the summit would not be pretty and there is not much of a rappel station on the summit, regardless of what the book in the hut may say.
