From the base of route 3.29 ascend the couloir up the north slopes to reach Hope Col. Follow the east ridge until a difficult section is reached. Climbing parties have turned this problem on both the Hopkins and Le Blanc sides. A classic chimney follows soon afterwards, and beyond the climb is a scramble to the summit.
