SWr South West Ridge 2
From the upper Ramsay Glacier follow a glacial lead on the west face just north of the saddle between Pt 2230 metres and Pt 2286 metres. Climb this, then head south to join the South West Ridge. Follow the ridge, moving on to the face on the right to avoid a small gut of loose rock.
