This was the first winter ascent of the Ramsay Face of the Whitcombe massif and, given good
ice conditions, may be the route on the face least prone to debris fall. It is a 1300-metre climb
taking a line just left of the Original Route. Follow and link snow shelves with three ice steps,
the third one being the crux. The climbing is direct until a slight jog to the right near the top.
Finish just right of the low peak, although a hard direct finish may be available.
