To be determined

Cross the ridge and traverse 900-1200' NE to intersect S snout of Sulphide Glacier on E side of N ridge. If visibility is good, party can lake a long right hand curved route up and across Sulphide Glacier to the left side (N) of the summit rock pyramid. Continue NE along and up this route to the summit pyramid. Continue up class 3 rock gully (snow in early season) to summit (9,127'). The gully route starts up face shortly above the rock step at base of pyramid and trends slightly left. If rock is covered with ice, do not attempt summit. The end of the road and start of trail is very obvious. It is possible to ascend from snow covered moraine onto crevassed glacier without realizing it, so care should be taken to rope up.
