5 out of 5 stars NE Face

Excellent route. First pitch was polished so I thought it was a little harder than 5.8 Felt like I was climbing in the Bugaboos

5 out of 5 stars lives up to hype

incredible climb. worth the effort to get there and do it. icy snowfields at base made start difficult. check the tat you rap off - there were 8 cut slings we pulled from the first rap station (not slings we cut, but already cut slings hanging there).

5 out of 5 stars Awesome line

We loved this route. Had no real issues with route finding. You can see the crux pitch from at least 3 pitches below it - just aim toward it. Felt the "easy chimney" noted on the topo was just as hard or harder than the crux 5.8+ (beware of these ratings) pitch. We summitted at 12:30 p.m.
