  Gain the ridge either via a steep 150m slope from the Grand Plateau or via the névé between Syme Ridge and Mt Dixon. Then head up a rock buttress and follow the winding arête to the summit.

  From the Grand Plateau turn the major icecliff on the left and head up. The route usually finishes high on the South Ridge. A somewhat dangerous climb.

  Either follow the narrow broken ridge from Glacier Dome or climb up a narrow 80m gully from the Grand Plateau just beside the large icecliff. Then follow up easy slopes to the summit. The best descent route.

On right of 2+ East Ridge route. Follow rock-band with left traverses to a near-vertical 55m ice & rock gully. This crux pitch is committing and difficult to down-climb, so rest calves midway on rock jutting out on left. Set belay high to give leader enough rope as it top-outs onto an icy slope ≈30m from ridge. 4 ice-screws for crux (although this was done on 2) and stakes. Follow ridge to summit on left and descend via East Ridge route.
