Main Divide 3+
0
The ridge from Dampier is relatively straightforward (refer to the North Ridge, via Mt Vancouver, Route), on Mt Dampier. Whereas from Malaspina requires traversing rock towers and rock scrambling on unsound rock, which could prove time consuming for a slow party.
East Face 3
0
From the Linda Glacier climb up diagonally to the right to gain a steep snow arête leading to the summit. Variations exist for this route on the snowslope to left. Nevertheless it is occasionally used as a descent route.
