The most straightforward access to the snowfield at the base of the south face and West Ridge is probably by two abseils from the 1599m col between the Sentinel and the Twins. The snowfield reportedly has also been reached by abseiling from the col between the Twins or by traversing over West Twin to the West Ridge and descending a large gully.

This route on the south face starts on the left side of the face with one pitch up a left-slanting gully, then follow a line up and right across the face. Good free-climbing for seven or so pitches on excellent rock.

West Ridge
Mostly straightforward scrambling up the rock ridge from the left-hand side of the snowfield below the South Face of West Twin.
