From the lower Havelock Glacier follow a glacial lead around a large buttress, and then follow
its north branch directly to the summit. This route has deteriorated since it was first climbed,
leaving remnant icecliffs in place of continuous snow. The route is now very difficult.

No issues with this route in late winter/spring conditions. Straight-forward travel over the hanging glacier and up the steepening face to the summit ridge. However, this route would be difficult in summer conditions as the description above indicates.
