Alpine
Description: 
A rock pinnacle stands at the bottom centre of the 600m high west face. The small col between face and pinnacle is reached by a snow couloir and is the starting point of the route. Once established on the face, gain the rib that runs up the left side of the shallow gully. Glaciation has left few holds on the lower pitches. Follow the rib to finish on the summit about 70 metres to the right of two rock spires which can be seen on the skyline. Crux pitch 14.

Comments

In late season conditions, the snow gully to right of pinnacle used to access the face may not be complete. If so, access to West Face may be easier on left of pinnacle up slabs between pinnacle and small glacier.
