Description 

From the Lena Lake trailhead follow the trail up past upper Lena Lake and continue up the east fork of Lena Creek. When the trail deviates from the trail in a roughly NW direction there is a campsite that makes an excellent overnight stay before summiting. Follow the trail to the NW until you hit a small avy meadow just before the first cliff band. Cross this and the adjacent ridge into the snow or rock filled couloir. Climb the Coulior until the headwall and then work your way right and up until you can easily work left. If the climbing seems harder than 3rd class keep traversing.
