In 2012 I noticed this couloir while touring around Paradise on Rainier. I just got back from two weeks in Haines and my addiction to steep still needed to be fed. We set out the next day with the totally wrong approach, poor climbing snow, and I only made it up a few hundred feet.
Last year I went back and got the whole thing. This year I went back to try a new approach, first day had avy danger and a separated shoulder. The next week it worked out, albeit with a hairy entrance.
