Great photo. There is however a trail and cairns in the portion you marked bushwack. The trail is very sparse and fades in and out but it is there and there are cairns as well.

Thanks Chris! That is exactly what I desired. This confirms that I read the approach instructions properly. Can't wait to make an attempt next season.

Nice shot!
How long is the rap? Can it be done with a single rope? (30 m 40 m or 70 m)

The rappel is 30m. A single 60m rope works. However, a fixed line is usually present.
