A classic climb. Remoteness, lack of escape routes, and the need usually to traverse Torres Peak make this a long route. Above the Torres-Tasman Col use the rock ribs on the Balfour Glacier side and then follow the narrow arĂȘte upward. The arĂȘte gradually broadens out towards the summit of Tasman.
