 Details

A few small patches of snow in the chimney, but easily avoided. For the approach, I definitely recommend dropping down to about 12,100 ft in Wetterhorn Basin after crossing the pass. There are wooden posts that mark a crossover to the trail that climbs back to the other pass east of Coxcomb. Use that trail to regain height until obvious grassy slopes lead to the S ridge of Coxcomb. Two 60m ropes for the rappel to Coxcomb-Redcliff saddle and it's cruiser from there.
