BETA PHOTO: Route in red.
The three pitch route starts by climbing the 4th of July couloir to about 1/3 height just above the first set of black rocks. Gain the obvious left leaning gully filled with snow and possibly ice. The crux is 35 meters up the gully where a vertical step is found. Climb another 30 meters of easier terrain and belay at a tree. The second pitch climbs the snow and rock couloir finishing with two steps at 50 meters to set the 2ed belay. Climb the broken rocks and snow for another 40 meters to the summit.
The route is just right of the left sykline of the peak as viewed from below. The second pitch will be an obvious landmark to see from the approch.
Standard alpine rack to #3 BD. Stubbies if ice is present. Pins were not needed.
