Approach from St. Mary's Glacier. The route is Northfacing and is located east of the ever popular Shooting Star Couloir. The climb is pretty mellow. The upper sections is where it steepens, some say to 45degrees. Roach's book states to 35 degrees but being on the route, I'd have to agree with 45 degree rating, where some AI2 can form. Descend via the SE Ridge trail. Parts of this route does get morning sun and it gets pretty warm and slushy. Rockfall is very common in the area. Debris marks the start of this climb (at least in the Spring of 05).
