Good ice climbing on the South Face. Mixed climbing on West Face.

Access: 

Access to the South face is gained by hiking up to Wye Saddle, above Lake Alta, and then crossing the plateau below the east face of Single Cone to a low point at the base of the ridge running above the South Face. From here an obvious large gully provides easy access down to the base of the
face.
The face itself is trapezoidal in shape and varies in height from 150m at its eastern end, rising to nearly 300m below the summit of Single Cone. All of the climbs that top out on face have an easy walk off back across to Wye Saddle.
Note that in general the existing routes which have only been assigned a numeric rock climbing grade are yet to receive a winter ascent.
