From the Gulch-La Perouse Glaciers junction ascend to a basin at 1550m where there are a number of natural rock shelters. From here ascend the ridge traversing several rotten rock steps. Then ascend a steep snowface onto the upper arĂȘte and follow this up onto the spacious summit area. A descent route has been made down the snow slopes to the north of the lower ridge.
