Starts in a frozen snow tongue, just inside the crater entrance of Teds Alley (An ice axe can be handy to cut steps). Move right up a blocky corner and ledges take you to the south ridge. A blocky scramble up the ridge, then move left out around a ledge (crux grade 10—exposure) and finish the last moves on the western aspect to the top of Sharks Tooth, there are many variations. Finish with a complete traverse to the north and down the chimney or Surrey road.
