Historically the normal route to climb from the crater to Sharks Tooth. Scramble from the crater or traverse the ledge from Surrey Road entrance. Corner and easy ledges lead to a narrow cleft behind some precariously balanced, enormous boulders.
‡ The cleft can be icy with freezing conditions and impassible in winter and spring, when it can be choked with ice. Fencing wire fixed in place is not suitable for anchors.
