A direct finish variation which avoids any sidling and tops out on the summit. When the prominent snow arĂȘte below the summit rock band is reached go straight up and climb a narrow five metre ice pillar sandwiched between a slab on the left and an overhanging wall on the right. Then there are 3-4 pitches up a gully which ends on the summit.
