 The Lawrence Face takes a direct line up steep rock and snow to reach the west ridge close to the summit. From the lower Lawrence Glacier, climb scree slopes to the foot of a steep rocky buttress, between the two main icefalls, that rises almost to the summit. Follow the buttress to a snow-filled couloir that leads to the upper ridge. Continue on the Lawrence Col side of the ridge until a large schrund is reached. Cross this and take a short couloir to the summit ridge, then traverse over several bumps to the summit. This rock is loose but not especially difficult.
