Description:

Bergschrund may be open at top, some smaller marginal crevasses too. Skirt to the right. Great route, straight up the North side. Awesome views of Shastina, the Whitney glacier and the valley to the North. Good camping at around 10,000' makes for a nice 4,500' summit day.

4 out of 5 stars Fun

Great non-tech. way to the summit. A bit harder than the Gulch because of the nature of the notrth side.
