ROUTE DESCRIPTION

As with the access to Hospital Bowl, follow the Connaught drainage until just passed the first Hospital gully, then ascend through the trees. Once in Hospital Bowl, gain the ridge on the skier’s left. Essentially follow this ridge towards 8812/Balu Peak, but be very careful – there is a very steep convex roll that can have high consequences.
