Gain Red Lion Col and then cross shingle and find a line through the bluffs in
gullies on the County side. Above, long easier snow slopes lead up the ridge. The ridge then
narrows, offering an exposed scramble on snow or very loose rock to the summit. This summit
ridge (called the Southern Cornice in past accounts) can be tricky under snow, with significant
cornices.
