Climb two pitches up the big snow ramp on the SW aspect to the ridge (about 50-60-degrees alpine ice but likely conditions dependent). Travel eastwards along the ridge toward the summit for about one rope length. There can be a short, very narrow and exposed section near the summit where care will need to be taken. From here is less than a full rope length to the summit, from memory. Descend via the north side, 4 abseils from memory, possibly 5. Be aware of the 'schrund when returning to the neve. Excellent intro route to the area for progressing mountaineers. A fun half day out.
