This route has a long approach, glacier crossing, then an 1,300 ft. ascent of snow and ice chutes up to 50 degrees. Teams need be fit, efficient, and travel fast. Nelson and Potterfield call the route "one of an elite group of snow and ice climbs in the range." Get a two for one summit on the route - you can summit Sahale Peak, then rap off it to get to the traverse to Buckner's North Face.
