This route is already on Mountain Project, just not under Taylor Peak. Here is the link: www.mountainproject.com/v/colorado/co_ice__mixed/rmnp__mixed>>>
Eds. FWIW, it was not listed under Taylor Peak since it involved substantial snow climbing. It was listed under the CO Ice & Mixed category, created to facilitate finding these small percentage of climbs within the CO section of the database.
Two ropes, set of nuts, short ice screws.

This is often a full-value route. Ken Younge & I climbed it in early April 2003. Due to its aspect - East - it gets first light very early, and the snow conditions deteriorate quickly. Hit it during a cold snap, and be on it by 7am.
The initial pitches are challenging M4. I recall simul. climbing the upper sections.
It's a full day outting, but well worth the effort.
