We just exited 4 days ago. I completly agree with aufsess. Climb the Col using the boulders on the left (south) side. Avoid the ice and snow completely.

Lamark Col

Please stay tuned for an upcoming report.

The route through the boulders is the route that we were expecting to take when we approached the col in mid-June. This was based on the previous TRs that I was able to find on the net. Then we arrived at the col and saw people descending through the snow. Our timing was fortunate in that the snow conditions were near perfect.

Thanks Russ for the recent photo and confirming that avoiding the ice/snow is best. I will be heading up and over the col for the first time on July 30. The pic and advice is really helpful.
