Start up an avalanche chute to the north of a large diamond buttress of
rock below the summit. Move right to gain the edge of the buttress and then up a snow rib above. Traverse across a large snowfield and up to the major schrund below the final wall of Dampier. Move either left or right (the easiest way) to reach the Divide and then via the ridge to the summit. The normal descent route from Dampier lies down into the Grand Plateau, via the south ridge
