Follow ramps west of the ridge base to gain a wide chimney. Continue on good rock and loose ledges up the ridge, deviating west as required. Climb 4 pitches of 13-15 through a large pyramid shaped slab at c2000m trending east till a traverse on the east side ends at a col behind the pyramid with a good bivvy ledge. Follow the west side of the ridge till it turns west and the glacier is reached. Climb exposed grade 13-15 on good rock then gain summit via loose slopes and the ridge from the south. Straightforward descent off the NW face. A long fun route on mostly good rock. Around 10 pitches.
