Chance

Type: 
Alpine
Description: 
On the SE Face, follow the next major rib right of Fluke. Scramble moraines and snow remnants up towards the base of the peak, with a few steps across Firn snow to the base of the central buttress of the rib. Climb loose rock for the lower/steeper half, following weaknesses close to the crest of the rib, then on quality rock thereafter. Round first tower on left, second on right. From the top, traverse across several towers along the ridge to the summit. On FA, 1 hr 25 for Chance, plus 25mins to summit; then descent was circuitous, made via the great ridge to Glentanner peak and down Twin Stream.
