Generally good rock. Gendarmes and exposed slabs may require a rope. From the junction of the north and west ridges to the summit, careful climbing is needed to negotiate some gendarmes.

Having recently climbed the North Ridge in summer I would suggest the grade is revised. As a summer route I would suggest 1+ (possibly 2 in winter due to the exposure and potential for some slabs to ice up). The rock on the route is generally of a poor quality with the odd occasional good rock on the gendarmes and slabby sections.
