These two routes consistently form high on the mountain just west of Skylight located high in an amphitheatre. Access these routes by skis to the base and boot pack up a steep couloir to the base of of a short rock face. Depending on snow conditions, one may have to negotiate a rock pitch to access the climbs. Two routes develop but a third right climb can sometimes develop in this area.
