NW North West Ridge
0
Completed as part of a traverse along the Divide. The broken rocky ridge is time-consuming.
Roger Chester, December 1930
WF West Face 2
0
Follow the steep creek on the south side of Mt Carl until a gap in the spur on the right allows access to rock ribs and the glacier draining the ridge between Mt Marion and Pt 1883 metres. Continue up here alongside a rock wall until slabs below a prominent arĂȘte allow access to the glacier and West Face of Mt Marion. Climb the glacier towards the rocky summit. The final few metres involve some awkward rock climbing and lead to the ridge just south of the flat top.
SE South East Ridge
