  More or less straight up the guts of the south face. Heaps of harder variants with WI3+ steps at the start are possible. Generally steep at first then onto 60 degree neve ramps with some small steps, 70-80 degrees max. First ascentionist exited right to top out about 15m from the summit. Climb when conditions are fat, rock gear would be nix. 2 mins access from Ball Pass easy snow descent off Turner towards Ball Gl then back right to Ball Pass.
