The ramp providing access through the cliff band was very wet and still has some remaining snow. At the top, we were literally getting rained on. We had come over from Pico Aislado and so had not come up this way. We had a very lightweight 30m alpine rope with us and used it as a backup while down-climbing the wet slab on the lower section of the ramp. There was some existing tat that we cleaned up and reinforced. There is also maybe ten feet of snow at the bottom of the ramp that is unavoidable but it was easy enough to kick steps.
