4 out of 5 stars Mixed appoarch

light apporach through snow field onto glacier. Near col may have mixed sections where a running belay may be needed based on climbers experince. Cornice may be deceiving, and will melt as the day goes on. Give it a good 5-6.

Great route, early season meant almost no crevasse danger.
