Comments: Instead of traversing the snowfield around the East summit to gain the depression between the summits, we felt a direct ascent up the first easy chute to the East summit was safer due to avalanche concerns.

Our route therefore went over the East, to the West summit, then cut beneath the East summit on the way back.
