There are 2 ways into West Cirque, (1) via Peak to Creek with a sharp right 100m down and a little hike or (2) Navigate over rocks and drop directly in. For the later, best to follow someone for the first time or avoid if foggy. There is some exposure up here. Anyway, the entrance can be easy to extremely difficult depending on how the winds affected the entrance, that is the cornice. Generally, you can slide in, or traverse across an exposed rock at the main entrance. Once in, very steep and requires confident and strong skills. Perfect fall line double black with lots of add on options once completed the main run.
