Description:

Ascend left ridge out of Camp Muir staying on the snow slopes left of the ridge. Cross (3)ledges of usually thin snow with rock and ice fall danger from Gibralter rock directly above. Ascend steep snow shoot. Navigate crevasses to the summit ridge. Best route I have ever done. Gret exposure, good quality climbing. Climb best in early season while snow is still on ledges. Don't get caught on the ledges with the sun on them, get through this crux early before 8 am. - Grade I or II if conditions are poor (warm)
