Approach

Relatively easy skinning from Meadow Creek - although this peak is kind of a haul.

Equipment Needs

Axe and crampons may be needed if you decide to boot the couloir directly.  Other wise, no special equipment needs (other than your brain of course).

Descent

Consistent 40+ degree pitch of sheer bliss for 1200+ feet.  In low snow years, a narrow choke can develop about half way down, other wise the couloir is quite wide.
