From the névé of the Baker Glacier head up steepish ice (up to 55 degrees) to the right of the prominent rock rib in the centre of the face, move rightwards and up, keeping an eye open for ice avalanches and rockfall. A route best done fairly quickly.

From the névé of the Baker Glacier ascend the snowslope to the left of the East Rib into an ice couloir that leads onto the upper East Rib. Beware of soft snow avalanches later in the day.

From the névé of the Baker Glacier, gain the rib via snowslopes on the left and ascend the mixed snow and rock steps. The rib eases into a snow arête and joins the top of the North East Ridge. A classic route.
