This is not a good choice of  one's first ice climb. The key pitches contain sustained 60-degree ice, and with it being late in the season, the beta is limited and there's uncertainty about conditions and the exact route, which potentially means harder climbing to move around obstacles that wouldn't exist otherwise. The approach is strenuous. You should be in good condition and have completed at least one other ice climb after the ice field trips. Please describe your experience when requesting leader's permission.

The tentative plan is to camp on some rocks at around 6200 with access to water, and leave the rest of the approach for the second day. The second day may be long. The plan may change closer to the climb date.
