|One option is ascending the "Iceberg Wall" (not really a wall, more of a steep scramble with one move nearing a 4) above Iceberg Lake to Iceberg Notch. Gordon Edwards has a good description, and sketch, in his climbers guide. I've descended it, and ascended it, with a full pack and its viable. First time we saw it we were descending and having trouble locating the key move from above. A family of goats, with yearlings, came along and showed us the route.
If time, and energy allow, then descend moderate terrain to Ahern Pass (often major goat traffic there) and on to Ahern Peak.
