Five pitches to the ridge. 19, 14, 15, 16, 16. The route starts in the centre of an attached pillar on the right-hand end of the face. Climb the crack in middle of pillar (crux) to a comfortable belay on ledge. Traverse right into an open corner system then ascend three pitches on blocky rock to gain the East Ridge. 200m of grade 10-13 climbing along the ridge to summit.
