Large col rising from the north-western most point of Broadway.
Alpine Grade II - III with total approach time and exposure, largely dependant upon weather. Route in col is varied requiring a large skillset of medium high technical ability. Hardes rock pitch was ~5.6 - 5.7 but it is icy most of the season.

We did this route with a fair amount of powder over very little ice. This meant we spent a lot of time trying to locate footholds on rock under the snow. It was a grand adventure, though, and got us good and tired.
Great Route. Excellent to train young climbers with a lot of evergy, who are trying to develop a large knowledge base of alpine skills. Remember to bring crampons at at least one ax (alpine or ice tool)!! Could bivy at the cave by chasm lake if you bring two rope to rappell the old bolts route to come back and recover heavy bivy gear.
