From the valley floor ascend the ridge out of the Baker Glacier onto a subsidiary peak. Then up the arĂȘte to an ice bulge. Ice changes may have made this part of the climb difficult. Continue up the face to the summit. A rarely climbed but beautiful line.

Access this rock face from the upper Bonney Glacier, gaining the rock at a point just right of the obvious slanting gut. First ascent line trended left before following pleasant ribs to the ridge. Variable rock.
