A fantastic entry level climb in the greater ranges. The intial crevasse ridden glacier slog was rewarded with a plateau from which to enjoy the pre dawn views before another penitente peppered slope. A bit of mixed scrambling down to the ridge proper, then a stunning straightforward push to the summit just to the left of the ridge. One axe is enough, and I think it is a little soft for Alpine AD.
