The North Ridge leads to the Low Peak (2609m) which is separated by a long airy summit ridge from the High Peak (2644m).

From French Ridge climb the Quarterdeck to the Bonar and then descend the Flightdeck to reach the Maud Francis Glacier. Cross the névé to gain the North Ridge where it begins to steepen towards the Low Peak and follow the crest to the summit. Time from the hut to the summit is about nine hours.
