It is a 5 miles approach, after crossing the iced Avalanche Lake, the Dyke lies on the left. It starts with a snow cone and it has a few pitches of easy ice. You can exit on the main ice slab early through a short pitch of vertical ice(WI3+ or 4) or you can keep going up in the Dike and exit later through a much easier passage. Once on the main slab keep going to the top. Descend through the standards trail or bushwhack from the col your way back into the Dike and with a few rappels you are back to the base.

Met a group of rangers in training who roped up for the cruz, but theres really no need to bring a rope in the summer.
