  Take the southernmost Gridiron Glacier. When below the rock buttress on the upper névé, traverse northwards around the head of a snow couloir that provides access to the northern Gridiron Glacier. From here, head up to the Lawrence divide and follow snow slopes with some easy rock scrambling on the Lawrence side of the ridge to the unimposing summit.
