Approach

Skin or bootpack from the top of lift towards the saddle between Agassiz and Humphreys.  At the saddle continue up Humphreys as if you were going to summit the mountain.  Head up to the false summit where the ski runs take a more of a SE route than an East.  Heck Yea is the obvious line on the edge of the cirque before it gets super steep.

Equipment Needs

Avalanche gear and training

Descent

Heck Yea is a steeper line for the first 100 feet and then it unloads onto the apron of the bowl.  I believe it starts around 38 degress then lessens to around 30 befor it flattens.
