Snow (very hard) in the center chute. There was just enough room to the left to squeeze by (where the snow/ice had melted away from the rock)

To get to the Northwest Chute you take a right (SW) and descend about 100 feet down what you see in the photo

Closer view of the left side of the waterfall pitch. It's harder than it looks. It's only about 15 feet but there aren't any bomber holds on the top. A couple of slings were present at the top (use at your own risk)
