Did this last season. Enjoyable, but short.
Quick word of warning: the chandelier that can form on the left side tends to be fragile. It got hit by a small chunk of ice dislodged by a climber above and basically exploded, hitting a pair of climbers racking up underneath it with a pair of microwaved sized blocks (they were fine, just called it a day after that incident).
I recommend waiting on the right end of the climb to avoid falling ice.

|Question on the approach. Do you hike north along the train tracks, or do you scramble up to Lower Hitchcock from the tracks, hit the cliff band, then hike north? Sounds like the latter but wanted to check.|
