Climbed via Panorama, Bruce Murray, and Upton. Beyond Panorama and its snow plateau, the ridge had a mix of rock pinnacles and snow arĂȘtes, while a tower before Upton Peak, like the peak itself, was turned on the north-east side. A shoulder of snow then led on to a narrow section of fine black crumbly rock that several early accounts disliked, followed by a step in the ridge that was passed on snow out to the left. Above this, a snow plateau with crevasses led them to the summit.
