This face has been climbed in summer – but it didn’t sound all that great: “Work east along the shelf below the steepish lower wall then scramble up an easy gut
on the left (east) of the easternmost small waterfall. Easy, tiring, much zig-zagging
on patches of snow and crumbling rock. Not recommended” (Tom Barfoot, 6 January 1973). While there is some danger on the face in warm conditions from falling ice and rock, it presents few difficulties under good snow cover.
