Begin near the bottom of the Standard Route ramp and climb more or less directly up to the north summit, following the easiest line. Reported as loose and unpleasant by the FA party, this climb has consequently not had a known repeat.


Approach from Daiphy Lake over talus as per the Standard Route.

Descend via the Standard Route ramp from the north summit - central summit col or via the north gully descent off the north peak.


Light rack, double ropes (in case one gets cut) and helmet
