South Ridge 3-

Gain the ridge either via a steep 150m slope from the Grand Plateau or via the névé between Syme Ridge and Mt Dixon. Then head up a rock buttress and follow the winding arête to the summit.

South East Face 3-

From the Grand Plateau turn the major icecliff on the left and head up. The route usually finishes high on the South Ridge. A somewhat dangerous climb.

Either follow the narrow broken ridge from Glacier Dome or climb up a narrow 80m gully from the Grand Plateau just beside the large icecliff. Then follow up easy slopes to the summit. The best descent route.

On right of 2+ East Ridge route. Follow rock-band with left traverses to a near-vertical 55m ice & rock gully. This crux pitch is committing and difficult to down-climb, so rest calves midway on rock jutting out on left. Set belay high to give leader enough rope as it top-outs onto an icy slope ≈30m from ridge. 4 ice-screws for crux (although this was done on 2) and stakes. Follow ridge to summit on left and descend via East Ridge route.
