Description

This is an easy approach to a deadly area. If you are not supremely knowledgable in local conditions and how to evaluate avalanche risk, do not come here. People often make the mistake of following others and get in serious trouble. Do NOT follow others here.

Many skiers have died in the terrain accessed from here. Very good ones.

Other than that, there's not much to this one. There's an obvious gate at the top of the Mongolia lift - go that way, and on to the summit. Some people skin; many just bootpack it. The views from the top are spectacular.
