Ascend from the head of the Tutoko Valley to the North West Ridge. Follow grassy gullies between the cirque wall at the head of the valley and the West Face to slabs then turn right at the top of the slabs onto the snowfield below the North West Ridge. Continue alone the ridge to the summit.
The party climbed the route in 18 hours return to the road. An extremely fast time considering over 2000m of vertical high gain.
