Follow the Cameron Glacier to the base of the prominent snow couloir cutting the south-east
face of the peak. The lower section contains the crux, a steep, two-metre ice wall, after which
the route lays back to about 45 degrees and ends about 30 metres from the summit ridge. From
here, cross left under the buttress into a short, steep, icy gully then follow good ice for the last
10 metres to the summit ridge.
