  From the head of Mistake Creek climb the avalanche fan, sidling through bluffs to the ridge. The ridge is firm slabby rock to start, becoming more broken higher up. The route was descended via the West Ridge back into Mistake Creek.

  Follow the tributary through a narrow gorge towards the col at the foot of the South East Ridge. Cross the slopes below the East Face to the North East Ridge then continue to summit.
